In the race, one of the honda riders, as he came around the corner it looked like he grabbed the clutch for a second. Why would he do that? Dont they all have quick shifts on the bike, eliminating the need for a clutch?

Maybe they were double clutching? I know in the desert when I am on my quad you do that up a hill to try to get more torque out of it

Thanks for the answers everyone. It seems like I stand corrected and they do use the clutch for downshifts. Now that brings up another question: why do they use the clutch for downshifts and power shift going up through the gears?
