Following motorcycle reduces cyclist aerodynamic resistance
Hey Tom Dumoulin, did you know?
Motorbikes in with the cycling bunch? Ban them! If only to prevent collision or falls. Still, cyclists also gain an aerodynamic advantage from the presence of motorcyclists. Certainly during time trials, as demonstrated in wind tunnel tests and simulations as part of this research, contributing to a safer and fairer race.
