i've used the bed of a truck, heavily fortified for stability, even having a camera on a makeshift skateboard being pulled by a truck, with a person attached between (quite fun) for low to high angled shots.

POV shots for the races use helmet cameras, or cameras mounted onto a bike. If it is a POV of one of the racers though, it's a small camera.

planning on shootng a bike chase.

Tank mounts work well for POV shots fore and aft. Depending on the bike you can find nice locations for mounting rigs.

Here's some examples:

And also here's a discussion on the board here:
