Mick Doohan's thoughts on "leg dangling" and body position.

I recently had the awesome opportunity to chat with former 5x 500cc World GP Champion Mick Doohan. We talked about F1, body position and riding style, "leg dangling", electronic riding aids, being a parent, go-karting and much more :)

You can check out the full interview here:

Enjoy and I look forward to hearing your thoughts, he's a pretty chill and funny guy.

Thanks everyone :) Glad you enjoyed it. What was the most interesting part of the interview, or the most surprising thing he said? I personally loved his thoughts on the electronic riding aids, and of course the "leg dangling" heheheh.
