OK - I'm no DHer, but I figured my question would get answered correctly here since you folks are probably going faster than anybody else.
Can I generalize cornering and say that:
No matter how fast you are going, you have to finish your braking at the same point as you enter the turn?
If you are going fast, you have to brake a little earlier.
If you are going slower you can brake later.
But in either case, your brakes should be off when you reach a specific point.
I am developing the opinion that trail braking, and drifting by using the rear brake are not necessarily the fast way through (but of course sometimes necessary for survival).
