    Petrucci interview


    Surprising how honest this guy is considering the competition for a spot on a factory bike.

    The most challenging thing is carrying a lot of speed through the corner and then opening the throttle as late as possible to save the rear tyre, so you have to mix the entry and the exit of the corner.
    I loved this. It illustrates how a guy like myself and this guy are riding on totally different planets. For me, it was always open throttle as early and quickly as possible. This dude is so damn fast he's on the bike doing the calculus in his head about how late he can afford to open the throttle and still maintain or advance his position. Neat stuff.
