Default Robbie McEwan bike cam

Thought I might post this link from argyllflyer on the Japan Cup thread to it's own thread as some who haven't seen it might find it interesting. Probably a bit boring to watch it all but the last 10mins gets pretty interesting when McEwan starts to move up through the field in the Japan Cup criterium from October 20th.

From approx 40min onwards which must be the last lap you can see McEwan drop off the wheel of the Saxo rider and hook onto Beppu from Greenedge. Not sure if McEwan was riding in the OGE colours, possibly not as he is retired. McEwan loses him on the final corner but catches him again in the final run in to the sprint. Great footage when he yells to Beppu to go for it and Beppu powers home. It feels like McEwan was doing a teaching role as I think he would have taken Beppu if it was a lead out.

For the record they finished 2nd - Beppu and 3rd - McEwan. Not bad for an old retired bloke :-)

Saw this elsewhere: Bikecam from Robbie McEwen in the crit, 45 mins worth!

I didn't realize that was legal.... it would certainly be illegal in the US. Stupid rule. In any case, super-impressive finish. I would have thought he was too far back in that last corner.

Not sure but it was only a crit so perhaps that was why it was allowed?

I checked in the USA Cycling rulebook (2012) and didn't see anything. There was a fuss made about it a few years ago but perhaps the rule never passed or was subsequently eliminated. Of course this wasn't USA Cycling.

and if you look on youtube there is plenty, and i mean plenty, of helmet cam / bike cam footage of amateur races. i don't know wether it would be allowed at the pro level (they probably won't check your bike specs at a local race while they very well might in the TdF)
