Good bearings and balls by the look of it. I guess only cissies touch the brakes.

I wouldn't fancy pushing the carts up to the start!

Unless they are timing their 'humping' to be in time with undulations in the road then I can't see how that helps.

They could gain a lot more speed by wearing aero gear and keeping as low as possible - they were catching a lot of wind!

It did look fun though.

As Colin says - a bit more aero would help. But what speeds were they achieving? Plenty fast enough for this correspondent!

Oh, and that oncoming (or stationary?) van in the road round a blind left hand bend towards the finish was a bit dodgy!

The only way of increasing their speed, when they start to slow down, or are trying to regain their position on the road.

25 - 30mph maximum speed.

I can see how moving about helps them to get round bend, but I can't see how the humping increase their speed, unless (as I posted) they are somehow reading the variations in the road surface and getting something to push against.

If you push upwards, all you are doing is lifting yourself up from the cart. If you push the cart forwards you are only doing so by pushing yourself backwards so that isn't gaining anything. If you happened to have a handy wall behind you and you pushed against that, then yes - pushing would help!

Do they still have motor bike sidecar racing?

It's odd that they put handles on the back, then instead of pushing them like a bobsleigh, they just scoot the rear wheels with their hands.

I 'spose rulz is rulz? Or is it cultural?

I did notice that there seemed to be some code for not blocking the opposition line when overtaking was occurring as well as on bends. Very sporting

I think it was simply necessary self-protection... Getting wheels entangled between carts on high-speed bends would not be pleasant for anyone involved!
