Pfft, I think he took to long to get back on the throttle. I could have better

backend looked loose, probably almost leaving the ground under some heavy braking.

Nice. Keep in mind that T11 is very tight (<90degrees) - that's why he's on the gas so late.

The most impressive thing is how long he keeps on the gas up the hill - on the other side is a steep downhill left and a nasty hairpin.

Ben and slow. How do you spell oxymoron?
Ben and whine
Ben and pissing about something
Ben and a whole lot of other shit.
But Ben and slow?
Not.

There is nothing firm, nothing balanced, nothing durable in all the universe. Nothing remains in its original state, each day, each hour, each moment, there is change. Change is the essence of life. Embrace change as you do life. To fight change is to live in the past.
