I was at the track and lost it around a corner. It fell on the right side. Not a hard crash at all. I went to squeeze my front brakes and there was no pressure and the didnt work. There is no fluid leaking anywhere? If I got Air in the brake line whould it cause the loss of pressure?

Check your calipers and make sure nothings binding, and try bleeding the pressure in the breaks either means you got a nasty leak your not seeing, or a massive amount of air somewhere in there.

Reset your forks, they are probably tweaked.
