to be fair, DH runs are a slightly different kettle of fish.
I did a Nigel Page training day a couple of years back and he was all about staying off the front brake and making the turns with the back wheel through a hefty dose of back brake and body english. Given he was absolutely leaving me for dead, he may have had a point.
Not something I would in any way condone for normal trail usage though.
That video brings back good memories, those tracks (they’ve combined two runs by splitting off) are very drifty and dusty, as is most of les 2 alpes. Once your going at any respectable pace, alot of the corners are one or two wheel drifts, even totally off the brakes.
I don’t see anything wrong with the overtakes, if you think that’s bad, never ride any dh tracks.
Skidding on DH tracks is OK I guess, they’re meant to be cut up and rough. Anyone skidding deliberately on XC trails should have their disc brakes taken off them and replaced with a set of greased cantis. 😉
