I've been reading a great book that I ordered from Chapters. The title is:
"Sport Riding Techniques" by Nick Ienatasch
This is an awesome book for every rider, from beginner to experienced track racers. I have learned a lot about cornering, braking, etc. and would recommend this book to be on your "must read" list. It will make your learning curve that must steeper and if you practice the skills in the book you will become a much safer, more skilled rider.
