Still sounds like a cool way to have a DNF, than a reliable technique. But, gotta try.
It does seem to defy all sensible logic. But if you are at a level to start playing with it, you will see that it is a very controlled technique and not nearly as suicidal as it sounds.
Doing it in the dirt on a decent set of tires that you trust will give you a safe environment in which to try it. Once you get a feel for it, doing it on pavement takes a much smaller leap of faith.
