This may sound like a stupid question, but have you ever wondered what makes the fast guys so fast? I am an intermediate ( level rider and am no slouch, but some of these guys are like lightning, they can lose you in a matter of seconds in the tight trails. Obviously, there are things like never coasting (always braking or accelerating), but beyond that, I believe these guys must have hyperactive levels of kinesthetic awareness - they seem to correct almost before a problem occurs. Its fascinating. Some of it must be god-given because they don't even know why they are so fast. Any fast guys care to chime up?
