How does Hoy keep the bike glued to the track?

Postby Chaderotti » Sat Feb 06, 2010 10:50 am

Here is hoys 2.4kw at work but if you look the bike does not bounce up at all.

How does he keep the bike from not bouncing around? Or is he not pulling up?

Years of practice and an awesome technique I'd say.
