I discovered this video today from Swiss band, The Legendary Lightness. Even though the music video is over 9-months old, it seems to do a great job capturing derny racing. For those not familiar with derny racing, it is where a track cyclists race against each other but they are all drafting their own motorbikes (or derny as it is referred to in the world of cycling). Very different to Keirin racing. It’s a tough form of racing especially due to the consistent high-speed the rider needs to maintain.

The song is titled “World Full Of You.”  Enjoy!

  1. Looks pretty scary to me! My first time on the velodrome and I couldn’t quite believe how high it was and feared gravity would do the rest.
