I've never seen a VIOLENT PELVIC THRUST like Mookie does at the 6 second mark off the gate. I realize he's probably catching a gear but I've not seen such a forward/backwards movement/pelvic thrust as depicted. It can't be for traction as keeping his weight back down the entire straight would provide the most traction. It's a very deliberate act that has me puzzled.

He almost looks like a bunny trying to impregnate his Honda. I was hoping somebody would enlighten me?

Could be a number of things:

A) He thinks he’s on a horse
2) He’s rearranging the massive testicles he uses for the whoops
iii) He’s played too much Mad Skills MX
D) He’s figured out the bike gets better starts if you fuck it

E) He's showing the bitch who's the boss?

1. His pants had slid down a bit off the start so he was fixn em via g force

2. Ever race a 5 hp go cart? And literally yank on it with your body to gain a couple inches to pass someone?

3. Freezeeeee put fire ants in his pants right before the gate dropped.

4. Trying to get holeshot device to unlock

Doing what? None of the other riders do "it".

Probably trying to shift. It's not always easy to shift under... load.

|

Quite honestly, I think he's shifting. I think he's shifting that bitch hard and proper.

Seriously though, it does appear to coincide with up-shifting. Probably starts in 2nd then hip-thrusts that bitch all the way into 5th before the first corner.

When I was on 60's and first got on 80's, I did the same thing when shifting. I was able to break the habit for the most part, but when I'm having trouble getting my foot under the shift lever I tend to go back to doing this exact thing.

I also wonder if Mookie feels that by shifting his weight forward, it takes enough load off of the rear wheel/chain/sprocket to shift into the next gear a little easier.

FWIW, I asked Robbie Reynard what Mookie's doing and Robbie said same thing as you guys, "shifting". Robbie said that's not a "technique" he teaches his riders...

I think he was trying to itch his ass with his seat to be honest... we've all experienced a courtesy wipe or 2 before.

D, the answer is definitely D...

I was fast... But being fast is relative to who else is on the track with you.

He watched an Uncle Ronnie video on proper racing technique.

You have to hump the bike between 6 and 9 times.

Licking his hands?! laughing I haven’t noticed that one. Laughed so hard I got tears thinking of Jeremy on the gate licking his paws like a damn cat. That’s funny as hell. Guess that’s the key to a purrrfect start.

He learned that move from James.

Whatever it is, it's working on that start.

Looks like there's a groove in the dirt from bikes exiting the rhythm section and he adjusts his weight over it. Then he moves his weight forward as his acceleration lessens and he prepares to get on the brakes.

balls probably itchin.

I think there was a thread about in 2 years ago before his back injury. He definitely does it and it’s pretty funny. To each their own I guess lol
