Tour de Suisse - New camera angles!

Fork-mounted camera on Patrick Calcagni's (Liquigas) bike. AWESOME!

Some of the shots of the pack descending around these corners are intense... these guys get leaned over far

Really glad to see this innovation...hopefully, it's light enough so that we'll see it again, maybe in the Tour...

Anyone care to put some of the action up on youtube with these shots? Looks pretty interesting!

Reminds me of Robbie Ventura's "Race Day" training DVD. He has a camera mounted to his bars and has a team mate with a follow camera throughout the entire race. There is also his current power, precieved exertion and heart rate.

I always though sports would be better to watch with helmet cameras.
