The Keirin is usually raced on a velodrome: about 8 cyclist do the first 6 or so laps behind a “derny” (a small motorbike) which gradually increases its speed. The derny then leaves the track and the cyclists sprint the last few laps to the finish. Imagine this epic racing but on ice!
The icebyk will be used to start Keirins for skaters next season!
Filmed from the Icebyk; Peter was holding the camara in his hand while pedaling infront of the 2 skaters. This simple and fun race format will be introduced in the 2014/15 season.
