Maybe a dumb question, having seen most of the Cadwell vids.
Seems like they're just riding over that hump and taking whatever crapload of air comes from it. I wonder how many riders have tried downweighting the bike just before the take-off point, much like downhill skiers over a jump. The goal being to reduce the air time as much as possible (you can't accelerate in the air, only slow down). Granted they're moving as fast as ever these days going into the hump, but i don't see anyone rising up a bit on the pegs, then compressing down as they go over the hump. Or are they and I'm missing this? Or is that just too difficult at speed?
Pls don't flame, just asking a legit technique question.
