I guess that is my question. Could it be something to do with the traction control sensor we saw on the rear rotor?

I would think that would be in the throttle controls....

ABS? Part of the MotoGP tech?

It may be as simple as putting the lever in a different position so that his boot was resting on it most of the time overheating the break.
Please don't tell me they are using linked breaks

Paolo Ceci (Speedbrain) said that he had problems with his rear brake as well. Apparently no one is actually talking about altitude, but today a few of the italian riders said they felt a little "dizzy" already. Anyone else?
