Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

No way, that would totally throw off your balance. It is weird that they put them so close, though. If one falls, he'd probably knock the other guy down, too.

They didn't "put" them there. It isn't the start. It's the middle of the race.

For extra nerdiness, I noticed the Mavic logos on their discs ended up in the same position after the inside guy hopped into position.

SPOILER ALERT!














































































The guy on the outside (Chris Hoy, Great Britan, green jersey) surprisingly won, even though Wolf got the jump.

I was like, "Why don't they take one foot off the pedal, then the other, than one hand off the bars, then the other? It's obvious they could trackstand all day." Then they started sprinting, reminding me that I know zilch about track racing.
