Just one question on form, since Wink had a thread regarding track form a while back. Hope you don't mind me asking:

In this picture, regarding the outside foot (left), looks like Greg isn't on the ball of his foot. Should he be? But his left knee looks like where it should be for his outer thigh against the tank. In comparison, the rider in front of him is more on the ball of his foot, but his knee seems out further than it needs to be. Looks like he could be hanging off more (don't mean to criticize, just trying to understand).

What's the perfect thing to be doing here? I know the majority of the weight should be on your inside foot with the ball of the inside foot on the peg, so what should you be doing with your outside foot?

Outside foot isn't really relevant, it all depends on the confort level of the rider. Some folks have it turned 90 degrees out, some on the ball of the foot, some in the middle like Greg has it. The key is to weight the inside foot (according to FS) and to try to get the outside knee or leg pushing IN to the tank to assist in the turning leverage. Different length legs require different positions in order to accomplish that.

Of course, it get more complex when you add additional issues... like a chicane. In a quick chicane, Greg would not be able to transition back to his left quickly since he would have to move his foot to where the rider in front of him has it.

Of course, all that said, there are a variety of forms that work, all that really matters is that the weight is on the inside of the turn. Some body positions make that easier to accomplish.

I believe the weight should be on the inside foot, but the outside foot's placement isn't critical, like the inside's due to clearance. When you dont put your toes up, they drag.

She comes back first week of June. She'll be doing all the dates until late August when she goes back to IU. (She just finished her semester in HK, she is traveling and scuba diving in Thailand until June.)
