It's always easier to spot in the videos, than it is to do on the track, at least in my (limited) experience. I don't know if it is because you're so relaxed watching the video, or what. I have videos where I have avoided crashes, and at the time, I felt like I just barely made it. Watching the videos, it looks like I had all day and a hundred options for getting through unscathed.
One thing I've picked up from class, is looking for things like tire walls during warm up and parade laps, and telling myself, "if something goes wrong, I am NOT going to hit that." I don't know why, but it gets me into "escape mode" faster.
Glad you're ok.
