Tandem Cycling? How does it work?

Recommended Posts

Apart from the friggin cool Kierin Racing...The most unusual racing on the velodrome is the ParaSport tamdem racing.

What is the function of the pilot - apart from steering?

Does the pilot need to be of weaker strength than the main cyclist?

Some of the pilot racers look like they compete in serious able body racing, others more coaching?

And why can't we have tandems in standard racing?

It was basically held in the same format as the sprint competition. It hasn't been held at the Olympics since 1972.
