Anyone out there have an honest explanation of what happened here? Sure looks to me like the bicycle accelerates itself. Here’s a link to a sport director from Garmin’s explanation. Slick road. The only explanation I can come up with is that he kicks his bike forward when he releases his right foot. The only problem with that is you need to twist to release. Here is a link to an experiment that “explains” the bikes motion. The problem with this is that Ryder’s rear wheel is on the ground when he is sliding, thus there should be no rotational stored energy. I think it is just a weird continuation of momentum thing, but it really looks screwy.
