    So, for anyone decrying the UCI weight limit and demanding it scrapped – doing so would likely kill off live video on any race that isn’t flat. With the weight limit, the weight of the gear can be offset by lighter bikes and ballast. With no weight limit, the live video weight is a liability.

      If all bikes had cameras similar to F1, weight differences would be negligible. As a viewer, I would LOVE if every bike and back-up-bike had a mandatory camera.

        Or at least a mandatory dummy camera housing with ballast for non-camera bikes – as is also done in many motorsport categories.

        Like in motorsport, cycling broadcasters would not see a beneficial cost/benefit ratio in having cameras on every bike.

    Perfect for any race with circuits, but still a bit of a hindrance to the poor bugger who has to do pitstops to swap bikes…. surely a bit of wireless tech will kick in quickly and they will swap bidons via team cars or feed bags…
    We can all get wireless charger platforms for phones and tablets, so the tech exists.

    • Dave

      All you would need is for the transmitter to be roughly a third of a bidon tall, and have a plug for the battery on top. The battery would be the top section of the faux-bidon and would have a jack which would click down onto the plug.

      Plenty of other rider-accessible options for locating the transmitter and replaceable battery pack if some effort went in to it – how about the spot where a triathlete would keep their lunch box?

    On one hand, these developments are great to see and will add a lot to cycling telecasts – which should add a lot to the sport. On the other hand, this is 2015 and the debates about batteries and business models seems very last century. There is a ton of tech that could be used and there are a myriad of business models to fund it. These should be non-topics. I appreciate that we’re getting a view into the beta-level of a new initiative but it still seems very out of step with the world.

    • Dave

      That would be because cycling is still stuck at a stage most other sports went through in the 1970s – think of Kerry Packer and his revolutionary use of TWO cameras to broadcast cricket!

  • David Everett

    If you didn’t catch the action live on TV it really added to the coverage. The current post race Gopro action is good, but it still has that distance as you know the result. The idea of seeing mountain descents live, sprint replays from multiple rider angles instantly live would I feel be something special.
