Handlebar grip: use you thumbs

“Wrap your thumbs around your bar. Even some pros just lay their thumbs next to their fingers on top of the bar when they’re not racing hard. But accidents seem to happen more often when people are relaxed than during the intense moments of life. Use you thumb as a hook, and you have a better chance of maintaining control during stupid accidents.” –Andy Hampsten, 1988 Giro d’Italia Winner.
