Re: poor riding skills
I too, get suspicious of the "just happened to have a camera rolling" on these types of scenes. But whether this was a set up, with or without the rider's knowledge, it's clear he was in the wrong lane position going in and nutted up. Note his body position, bike position, bike angle and head position. "The Pace" is good advice. Target fixation is largely being ruled by your fears. Learning proper technique will give you confidence and the best chance of avoidance or at least minimizing the negative outcomes. Thank God he was wearing protective gear (the difference between walking away and being carried away).
