Graeme Obree has made his first recorded time in his attempt to set a new Human Powered Vehicle record. Although he doesn’t think he can reach 100mph as originally planned he’s hoping for 60+mph. The runs take place on a closed road at Battle Mountain where yesterday he unofficially acheived over 55mph but had to slow as he felt Beastie was under geared making it hard to control. See the photo here where it’s leaning over! Looking forward to seeing what happens once the gearing is sorted. It’s still amazing to think he can keep it upright get it moving.
