Well you would not expect to see the ultra clean Japanese racing dirt track on the dirt would you ?
OTOH an unfared upright opposite locker walking over fully fared crutch rockets looks just a little staged.
Didn't look staged to me. Actually the fully faired road-racers looked out of place on that short track. No way could they take advantage of lean angle, nor their aerodynamics in this race where I'm guessing that 80 MPH is the top speed.
The more it looks like an asymmetrical speedway machine, the better it will probably do ... And Yellow Jersey guy on the speedway bike was riding right on the edge, he slid a bit once or twice.
If they're running these events in Japan, I'll bet the Japanese fans are going wild in the betting office wagering on these races ....
