MotoGP™ slang explained: Part 3

The third and final part of our beginner’s guide to some of the slang used in MotoGP™ is here! TEAR OFF:These are plastic strips that are added to a rider’s visor on their helmet. During a race or practice session, visors can become dirty, so a rider can tear off the strip in order to clear their vision and have a new tear off to use. Any time a rider is braking into a corner and isn’t upright, it can be referred to as trail braking. Some riders are lucky and skilful enough save themselves from crashing in some situations. VISOR:The part of the helmet that allows the rider to see where they’re going. This is something that riders and teams don’t want, as it reduces acceleration times. They will be making a wildcard appearance or the rider will be referred to as a wildcard.
