Except when really pushing it the average (99.9%) human defaults to their strengths and thus will perform critical or crux moves with the common trailing foot trailing and the lead foot leading. Coaching a rider in lead foot switching has its potential pit falls as riders tend to switch feet by back pedalling exactly when the bike least needs to be back pedalled. Different for an aggressive rider that is always putting a pedal stroke for extra speed but that kind of rider doesn't really need lead foot/ balanced riding coaching. Most great coaches would let that sleeping dog (lead foot switching other than for car park drills) lie. This 'custom' pin configuration makes total sense when one considers how the trailing foot is used to maintain contact with the pedal and lift the bike. Seems like a pfaff that can easily be avoided by riding clips!!
