Yes he could...and he did. It's a perfectly legal move. He didn't physically push Hoy, he got in front and moved to the right. OK, there was a little "incidental" contact. The sprint was not engaged at that point.

It's called "pushing" but it's more like guiding. If the bikes are overlapped, the trailing rider must protect his front wheel or he will go down. The leading rider can guide the trailing rider up as long as it's not a sudden move.
