One of the most under-watched Olympic events in America — by no fault of NBC — is track cycling. In addition to the NASCAR-like crash appeal and the element of danger lurking around every corner, the sheer velocity these fixed gear bikes attain always makes for quite the exciting spectacle even if you don’t know what exactly is going on. Same goes for this video. It was created to accompany the Chemical Brothers produced track that serves as the official theme song for the London Velodrome, a technological marvel in and of itself.
