Life in the Fast Lane with Steve Natt appears on hte How to Channel every Monday night. Last night he was showing a noob how to ride down hill through the bendies. There were some points which made a lot of sense like road positioning, etc, but the thing which got me was that he told the person not to brake with 4 fingers, but to only brake with 2 fingers and keep the other 2 on the throttle, that way you can still control your throttle whilst under brakes. Not something you owuld be wanting to do going downhill through bends. To me, that is just asking for trouble!
