Chimping is when you look at the camera's LCD display after every shot or two. It comes from when you look at the screen and see a good picture you say "Ooo oo oo I got a good shot", like the sound a excited chimpanzee would make.
The main reason I didn't do it was I wanted it to be like shooting film again, and looking at the display eats batteries. I did catch myself once looking out of habit.
The other thing I did was once the riders and bikes got covered with mud I put the camera down. I have 1000's of photo of riders that you can't tell who they are because of the mud and dirt. Whats the point of more Gigabits of sub-par photos.
