Patrick Seabase: Motor-paced Cycling

Brand new video from Switzerland’s Patrick Seabase (former pro skater and sponsored track bike rider). Great to see him spending a lot more time on the bike these days. He was the driving force behind the recently defunct GOrilla bicycle company and currently working on a number of his own projects. Stay tuned to his new blog for updates.

Motor-paced training refers to act of riding very close behind a van or motorcycle (with the rider providing the windbreak) and using the slipstream to reach speeds of up to 100km/h. It’s one of the toughest cycling sessions a rider can do. As you’ll see in the video, Patrick reaches 83km/h on on his carbon track bike.

Update: Tips on Motor-paced training. And some beautiful still shots from Ian White.
