Bike handling for New and Old: Countersteering

Thanks to Davis Phinney and Connie Carpenter's book Training For Cycling I learned about countersteering before I started racing for real. There's no doubt that cutting a tight corner, at speed, has its advantages.

For those of you who have never raced in a crit, or those like me who could always use a remedial course every now and then, here's five information packed minutes of goodness.
