    Many Ways can be used to do this. *spoilers*

    1 - A transparent pole, like acrylic hidden behind the bike.
    2 - A normal Pole/broom then edited out.
    3 - A Person, standing in shot - holds the bike, Counts from 3, on 2 They let go of the bike, jump back, Shot is taken on 1, on 0 grabs the bike again before it falls over.
    4 - Fishing line

    Thanks Sam

    We had guessed along those lines - although I wouldn't fancy trying the 3rd option on a 8 grand time trial bike on a concrete floor!
