I had a team-mate like that one time and he used to be his own worst enemy. I just choose not to worry about that. It's more important to be mentally fit.
Do you think there should be a minimum weight limit in MotoGP?
To be determined. I really don't want to comment on that, because you may penalise people more than you help others. Someone like Dani would need to carry 20 pounds on his bike, which is harsh. Having said that though, it doesn't really bother me
Do you leg dangle when braking?
I don't and I never have throughout my whole career. I thought there might be something to it so I tried it in Malaysia a couple of years ago and I almost fell of the bike. I need my knees and feet on the bike so that I can squeeze it.
When you take a leg off the rest, you put all the weight on your arms, you ride a lot of the motorcycle with your core. The only time I take my leg off the rest is because I'm about to crash my brains out or it's an 'oh sh*t!' moment. I never do it on purpose because I'm trying to take as much weight off my arms as possible already.
When I was behind Valentino, I know that when he did it, he out braked himself and almost ran into the gravel. If there is an advantage, I don't know about it.
Thanks for taking time out to answer my questions - 'It don't git no better!'
It don't git no better baby!
