Body Positioning

How does moving off the bike help with cornering?:

  • (pics of lean angle vs moving off the bike).
  • lower centre of gravity, stability
  • can relate back to chicken strips - those with chicken strips may have poor body positioning and thus lean the bike more to attain the same speed as someone who is getting off the bike. Having no chicken strips is not necessarily a good thing if you have poor body position as you have no tyre left whereas someone getting off the bike is leaning the bike less and thus has more tyre to lean if you need to and can thus go faster without running out of tyre
