Was it the small bunny hop across the low median strip?

Those Euro kerbs are so shallow that us Sydneysiders would just take it as a minor road irregularity. No bunny hop needed. :lol: :lol: :lol:

How was the difference in speed 2:30 into the clip when he passed the bloke in the green :shock: . Poor bloke probably wondered what hit him, proves he had his helmet strap done up, would have come off from the wind pressure otherwise. :)

Yeah, maybe the rest of us need to ride a TT bike to appreciate how difficult a bunny hop is on a TT bike. Even if it is only 5cm or so.

I watched this again tonight. He was going seriously fast having just stood the bike up out of a corner and he lined up the lower section of gutter between two higher sections perfectly 8)

I bunny hopped my fixie up the curb this morning, but not at that speed, as I needed to know that the pedal rotation was going to be just right

Never ridden a fixie but that sounds hard. I could see some buckled rims there pretty easily.

Fixies are harder on wheels than other bikes, one of the reasons Velocity Deep V's are one of the preferred wheelsets

Classy bit of work that, smooth as...

Thanks for that. Fabian is one of a kind, and I just love watching his cornering... He creates more good footage than anyone else, that's for sure!

In other TT news, my good friend and former Sydney cyclist Dr Jones came 18th at the Open UK TT championships http://cyclingtimetrials.org.uk/Default.aspx?&ge1246__geka=0qr-ktkYrcYzPU7-JC7bf4TEQVysEdko9FNyoET_y_UVWYddlKP_Kuj9ncEpdIGgyjBZtzZYuKkOoatM5DZLvA&ge1246__gevi=bkosVTEcmXX5ekdECVvBmA&gv484__gvac=2&gv484__gvff0=55580&gv484__gvfl0=0&language=en-GB&tabid=109 in what can only be described as a strong field!
