There's only 2 causes that I can think of. First would be the piston sticking in the caliper. Second would be the slider pins sticking so the caliper doesn't move freely from side to side.

also make sure you have fresh brake fluid in the reservoir. I know a guy that was racing and the old fluid caused his back wheel to lock up. luckily he didnt crash, but it could have been bad. you use your brakes so much and its such a small reservoir the fluid goes bad. So change it at least once a race season
