was looking at the article on Motorpacing, in the current issue of Paved magazine,
and folks kept up those old bikes with 2 stroke motors, and a moped like pedal scheme.
had me wondering.. Aprilia did some Fuel cell prototypes, but dont think it went far..
or in an appropriate direction.
given the nature of Keirin Racing on Indoor tracks, a hydrogen fuel cell motor would be so much better.
because the exhaust is nontoxic.. it's water.. AFAIK
burning hydrogen is oxidizing it..
the niche to fill is a fast enough easily controllable, pace increase.. quiet running machine to lead out racers
and not having a hydrocarbon exhaust in an indoor Velodrome , just so much better
