I mean in terms of shifting, since theres quite a bit of hard braking, should I be going 5-4-3-2 or just slow down, double clutch and pop into 2nd? I find that when i go through all the gears, I end up having to slow down well before i really need to.

Any opinions?
First, for our US friends, you're talking km/h not mph. Second, to answer your question, not that I do this a lot, but my vote is brake hard and go directly to second. You never need to row gears sequentially.
