    Most common track crashes

    Is it true to say that majority of these crashes are due to poor throttle control in the corners ?

    Hard to say exactly as they are different in many of the vids. Cold tyres very possibly, could be bad setup, grabbing too much brake...etc... too much throttle too early would most likely lead to a high side rather than lowside.

    Most Common Track Crashes

    The majority of crashes that I see when instructing on trackdays are normally caused by the following:


    • Ambition vs talent (or lack thereof / rider error).
    • Cold tyres.
    • Poor throttle control (highside).
    • Poor brake application (lowside).


    The above can be broken down in much greater detail as crashes on track are often a combination of several factors but broadly speaking the video has examples of them all.

    When I first saw that link I thought it was a joke, then I saw the video and was like hmm interesting!
    Am curious to see how/if that concept develops further
