That makes me wonder. 
...if a bike crosses the finishline first with no rider, does that said racer win?

Or if a rider crosses the finish line with no bike  ???
Did you know that something sliding goes faster with the same amount of inertia than something rolling?
Cherry as in mint or as in cherry red. And if cherry red, wine cherry, wild cherry, black cherry, or mint cherry? Actually do you have some mint tires in minty green, or mint & chip?  ;D

I didn't know that Grady. And I still don't.

If two objects were observed from the same frame of reference,
with equal mass and moments of inertia (the two inertial terms that matter in sliding and rolling),
they had equal mechanical kinetic energy,
and one was rolling while the other slid,
then the sliding one would move faster.

Sorry, when I see things like this I just have to write something. I'm not trying to be an a$$ though, I've got enough smites to my credit already. :(

*sssssmite* Just kidding.
Man I felt that going to that level of detail would have been wasted. Now that I know we have another poor soul aquainted with Newtonian Mechanics here - I will be sure to properly state what I am trying to say.

Cherry as in mint or as in cherry red. And if cherry red, wine cherry, wild cherry, black cherry, or mint cherry? Actually do you have some mint tires in minty green, or mint & chip?  ;D

The rolling object (the control rider) is braking hard before the sliding bike even gets in his periphery...the front forks are compressed, his arms are stiff, the rear end is raised up and his crotch has slid into the tank...the dudes braking for a turn more than likely (unlike the rider behind him)!

No shit... dam that was close. But it amazing to see how perfect he bike looks sliding along.
