Bike cameras in pro cycling

In my opinion, on-board bike cameras are one of the best things to happen to pro cycling coverage in recent years. It’ll only get better as the technology moves forward and funding increases. Think real time footage from sprints with data overlays of rider speed, power or hill gradient.

Here’s some footage from Stage 4 of the Tour Down Under. A huge pile up from the chasing peloton after the main sprint finish. According to reports they were doing 60-70kph down the finishing strait when this happened!
