Obree and the Land Speed Record

The ingenuity of this man is legendary and he can smash out a cracking good ride too! I admire him so much, as a cyclist, engineer/builder/maker, but most of all for his human spirit. I wish nothing more than for him to have success at his attempt, which is not an easy this to do. Beating the human powered land speed record is going to take a remarkable effort on all fronts. To one of my few heroes; Good luck! Check out more on Graeme here, his interview on humans invent here and Telegraph here.
