      Has more to do with rotational inertia being a vector, meaning both a value and a direction.
      In order for the bike to go down, you'd have to change the angle the wheels are rolling at, but the rotational inertia doesn't want to change (hence..inertia), so the bike stays up.

    Modern bikes are so good, they almost ride themselves.

    HUGE props to this guy. But as a rider myself, I can't help but wonder what threw him off the seat. My first thought was that his knee puck caught something on the track, but upon further viewing, it's tough to tell whether he was dragging. I noticed that his head position, didn't quite match the corner's exit, could that be a factor?

    He races a bike with a camera pointed at himself? Sure, it paid off here, but please tell me that's an odd thing to do.

    This is like the greatest stunt ever pulled never planned.
    Also, why did he bother getting back on the bike? He should have just ran to the chequered flag.
