Technique question for you all that I've been trying to work out: what's the advantage of opposite sliding into corners? You see it a lot on video, and when I pay attention I notice that I do this in some cases as well.
However I'm not sure what, if any, advantage comes from it.
By opposite sliding I mean sliding the back end out in the opposite direction to a corner during the setup. Here's a great example: https://youtu.be/DenzJiBJWx0?t=6m14s
I did think that perhaps it works as an extended scandi flick combined with late braking, causing the suspension to compress into the slide, and then unweight to pivot into the turn.
Or maybe there's no advantage at all, but it just looks and feels rad.
