Oh my. Wonder how much Honda paid Campbell to ride that slow and make that look hard without the DCT.Then there's this video:

Oh... and Chris Burch on a KTM doesn't seem to have too much trouble getting grip and keeping his momentum with a clutch.

The DCT is great and definitely would make that section easier but there is NO WAY Johnny Campbell or a rider with his skill would have had that much trouble on the manual transmission bike. Campbell is a really skilled rider, he could have wheelied that AT through that entire section.
