When I'm hitting step up triples in 5th gear pinned, and my front end is too high, I use the rear brake to bring the front end down. OK, I mean when the Pros are doing it....

Stopping the rear wheel allow the momentum to move the rear of the bike up. A panic rev will bring the front end up. BTW, it's not fake. 2 guys (including the one in the video) are listed as doing that trick for the X Games.

It's all about the gyroscopic effect in spinning wheels. Also why sitting still on a bike is very difficult to stay upright, but when the wheels are rolling it's much easier. Also explains how it's impossible to turn a bike left or right without turning in the opposite direction first. Next time you ride a bike, if you want to turn right, push forward on the right handlebar and while you'd think the bike would want to turn left, it'll actually turn right. Cool shit Maynard...

RC definitley needed more rear brake last night Renner got robbed
I thought you meant on the ramp not in the air

I think you've been too much again. Do BMX bikes even have front brakes

He said the reason he crashed was because the ramp was wet and when he applied the front brake to inisiate the flip the tire slid through the water
