Velodrome + TRON = So obvious, so wonderful.

Check out this animation which, apparently, is shown at the start of all lightcycle track cycling sessions at the 2012 Olympic Games. The animation was produced by crystal cg, set to the track Velodrome by The Chemical Brothers.

I wondered if this was a New Aesthetic piece, though not nearly as stylized as digital glitch and early 90s 8-bit-ness. The faceted nature of the human figures on bikes, thus disconnecting them from image of being human, seems to fit the bill.
