Please share how the foot moves forward at 12,1?? Extend, in terms of the hip, means moving the leg inline with the torso...that is not going to result in the foot moving forward...as required by your claim of 'fully tangential'
That lying back position makes it more difficult for their opponents to pull them forward. It's how their leg muscles are being used to generate the leg force that makes the all important difference, unlike rowers or outdoor T o'W men whose leg muscle action is almost similar to that of natural pedallers. To apply maximal torque to the crank at 12 and 1 you need only a fraction of the force this technique is capable of generating and unlike these T o'W men, a TT cyclist is applying his force to a fast moving target.
Nothing you wrote explains anything related to cycling or your claim of moving the foot forward with the glutes at 12. Try again?
