A good example of why the rear brake can be dangerous

This rider's technique is poor but what really makes him crash is the fact that he locked up his brakes after he panicked about his entry speed (just a guess, but seems likely.)


(Notice how in the beginning of the video when it shows him turning how he is not hanging off the bike at all. Seems like he didn't know how to corner, yet still wanted to take them fast.)
