Hey Harv, that is a very graphic image. In my experience the rider on the outside of T1 has an advantage, and I suspect most experienced racers will hold that line. But there is a big attraction to diving inside. It just messes up the rest of that complex.

In your image, it is pretty clear that Joe is carrying much more speed. Such a fine graphic. It happens too fast on tape or live. Thanks for that.

Out of curiosity, why are there not many images of them turning up out of the bowl to the last turn? Even TV misses it. There is all kinds of styles and chances to take down there. It strikes me as one of the greatest turns in motorcycle racing. ?
