Hey I'm just confused as to why on a lot of tracks on the front straight the riders go from the outside of the track to the inside, then back to the outside? This only applies to tracks where the first and last corner are the same direction, why not just stay on the outside of the track?

I think shortest distance through a turn is an inside line,by taking it the bike gets leaned over for a shorter time...
