Stayer bikes

stayer bike was used to ride behind a motorcycle or derny on the track. The typical small front wheel and 'reversed' front fork made it possible for the riders to get even closer to the motor riding in front of them. By being this close they could benefit as much as possible from the slipstream created by the motor. This also meant that the track riders were very vulnerable and more than once riders got killed while riding more then 100 km/h.

dropped from the UCI championships in 1994.
