Tail braking GONE BAD!

Just to clarify Trail Braking has nothing to do with the rear brake. People get this confused all the time. In a turn the rear wheel is doing 70% of the turning.

That was a more believable recovery then that guy on the Isle that went over the handle bars....Self-control...and no puckering...was the key of not going down

Yes. When you take your race school, you get a "Provisional Novice" licence. You have to complete two race weekends without incident and have the race director sign off on it ... you then get your full novice licence.

While you're a "provisional" you wear the shirt. It lets other racers know you're brand new, and to cut you a little slack

I'm afraid there's not much danger of that while running 1:17's at Nelson Ledges. It's not a bad time for someone who's never raced before though.

Does an agriculture experience count against you?
If so, I guess he has to start over again.
