Why the hell do they always take the wheel (and sometimes the bike) that they just swapped out when they push the rider off? Is there some regulation requiring them to do so (paging Master 50!!)? Seems pretty obvious they could give the rider a better push with both arms. I should probably know the answer to this question, but alas, I do not.
Just say "NO!" to WCP!!!!

So they don't have to run back to the gear against traffic? So the gear doesn't get run over while they are pushing the rider? Because a one handed push is almost as good?
