Meant to respond to this;Wow. Loads of respect that he's actually doing the stunts himself.
However, if he wasn't producing it, no other production would risk having such a big star being hurt. These days, with CGI you can paste anyone's face on a stunt double's body convincingly enough. Something tells me he's doing his own stunts not for the believability aspect, but because he's an adrenaline freak.
I'd have to re watch it, but if you move your leg forward adjacent to the front wheel while going into a turn, you can load up the front tire more.I wonder why Tom in the clip is kinda getting ready to put his foot down. It seems like the wrong thing to do. Must be for a dramatic effect.
