I was there Flug, it happened. And not just Brayton. It happened a couple of times where the other rider got a huge run at him in the whoops and made the inside pass in the turn after the whoops. Dungey however would know it as happening and would square the turn and dive back under the other rider to re-pass. He was then able to stretch a little gap over the course of a lap, until they got back to the whoops.
