Question for those who know more about racing than I do - which would be the majority...
What is the purpose of countersteering while the front is completely unloaded and the bike is powering out of a bend?
I notice that a lot of riders do it but Stoner seems to be the most extreme exponent as in the video link above.
Any insight into this?

Florin, it's been noted, I'll be back with a witty riposte in a day or two.

thats only co incidental its not countersteering, any wheelie will generally have the front wheel pointing one way or the other.The front wheel still has a balancing turning fuction even if its not on the ground

Testing begins shortly in Valencia. Nice and sunny this time. Good to see how new kids get on with the MotoGP bikes.

Mika Kallio has signed new 1 year deal with MarcVDS in Moto2.

I thought that Iannone might be headed for that seat- did I read that on MM? Based on skill AND nationality.

What about the 2 second gap?
So is this just a joy ride for Bradl or did he sign with LCR? Didn't see an announcement. He should go to MotoGP now. Good chance his stock would be lower after next year.
