I've often thought same, so many times during his saves his knee sliders are pulled around behind his knee. Never wanted to post it to avoid tempting fate.

Me, personally, in a "backing it in situation" after I've grabbed as much brake as possible during entry, I trail brake with a bit of front brake to keep me from lowsiding as I lean as far as traction limits allow. And of course, throttle out.

His work out regime is well documented . Not only is the little bastard cut like a bodybuilder, he spends hours basically doing yoga. He has the strength and flexibility to pull these insane save off, it quit being luck about 100 episodes ago. Dude is fucking unreal.
