This is precisely the rider that linked brakes were designed for. Then, with some front brake applied, ABS might have been useful.

Thanx. I had to enlarge the video and use a lot of stop action to see those bad patches along the edge of the tread. You got some good eyes and/or better video screen to see cords.

Plus, I am not used to looking at CA tires. There is a lot of rubber worn off the edge contour of that tire. Looks like the tire was baked at the track and the worn, spotty areas might be blistering? Spotty areas look too irregular to be remnants of cupping?

Tire looks worse than merely 'bald'. And I don't recall ever seeing anything like that tire before now. I hope that a tire expert will weigh in on that tire and explain how it might come to look the way that it does?

But really, the tire in question had cords showing, that's just stupid.
You'd be better off with a car tire on the front!
He'd have had the steel belts showing

Hopefully not 205, but this is my favorite by far.

Rider has absolute responsibility not to hit the two wheelmen. I agree it was idiotic of that dad to stop where he did, but that doesn't relieve the rider from having to stop or avoid them.

Don't know how it ended, but if Ricky Racer was using proper technique, then he saw dad and junior before he even tipped into the turn.
