Bit of a weird moment in yesterday’s Vuelta stage—after Ryder’s crash, his bike appears to be spun in a circle by its rear wheel.
My guess would be the rear wheel kept spinning as he slid out, and still had enough energy to rotate the bike when it came back in touch with the ground.
Plenty of other reasons why a motor wouldn’t really work here, but I don’t want to act like this is a theory that needs to be debunked. It sure does look weird, though.

Charlie: How’s that, Lieutenant?
Maverick: Well, I just happened to see an unlicensed content creator make a…
Maverick: Uh, sorry, Goose. *We* happened to see unlicensed content creator make a compelling, funny, intelligent Vuelta video.
Charlie: Where did you see this?
Maverick: Uh, that’s classified.
Charlie: It’s what?
Maverick: It’s classified. I could tell you, but then I’d have to kill you.
Powers stresses that a full-on dance move, such as the Leg Wobble he demonstrates here, is an example to be avoided. Keep your barrier hopping at the level of a style; cf., the Shoulder Lean.
2006 Jeremy Powers reminds you that if you want to hop the barriers, you need get in the right frame of mind with a couple style-establishing pre-race exercises. This is his take on the classic Shoulder Lean.
