I fail this test as I can make only a 60 degree angle with my left leg while I can lift my right leg almost straight.

Is it due to tight hamstrings do you think? Or some gluteal muscles? How do you think I can correct this and make both legs equally flexible?
P.s. I don't ride for about five years due to some patellafemoral syndrome. I wonder if it has to do anything with this and maybe I can ride again if I can correct this.
In what way is failing this criterion a failure? Where does it prove that it is necessary to satisfy this criterion?
