I have tried this many different ways and I gained a full second here.
Here's what I do: in 4th up the jump, squeeze brakes before crest, shift from 4th to 3rd while light over the crest, throttle down the backside of the jump, squeeze of brakes before turn-in to 6, throttle through 6.

I've felt that I'm complicating this complex with all the changes from brake to throttle and back. Are you recommending to brake before crest, stay in 4th over crest, no brake before turn-in to 6, and throttle through 6?
