Do motorbike cameras not have zoom on them that makes it look like they are motor pacing?

they do, and I dont understand why they dont use them more to avoid these kinds of problems (though for the cameraman it might become a bit more motion sickness inducing as what youre looking at is then out of sync with what youre feeling on the bike), but you could see the rail of the back of the motorbike in some of it, so it wasnt zoomed in much at all.

I kind of wondered when Herregodts came pass whether the motor rider had been told you're having to much impact pull back by race control, but by then the damage had been done

Zoom probably also wouldn't be very useful on twisty roads. I don't think anyone has invented zoom that can go around corners.
