Cool video, zolder is my favourite track. I ran 1:50 last year on a stock 2012.

Zolder is quite hard on the brakes and I also run into some brake fade when my pads are getting worn. 24 of april i have the first day on my new 2015 bike there. Really interested in what the DDC feels like in comparison to 2012 non DDC fork.

I have DDC on my '15 also, please do post about it as I'm curious to see your thoughts about it on-track.

Have fun and be safe!

I will miss Zolder. Unfortunately I won't get to ride it again before I leave the country. Even with the fade I was out-braking everyone. However I was in mindersnel so.... probably not hard to do!

The way Reiterberger goes around Zolder makes me sick. 1'32" is freaky fast!
