We are glad to know that you enjoy reading our magazine. Thank you for your kind words. As for who introduced the ‘knee out’ riding style in our coverage of the World Ducati Week, Paul Smart was the one to introduce it in the international racing scene. In fact, when he first did so, his riding style was described as ‘untidy’ by the commentators of that time. As you so aptly observed, it would be nearly impossible to pinpoint who first introduced that riding style to the motorcycling world in general, especially considering this happened in an era
without the benefit either of the Internet or Wikipedia.
