    About a week after riding that world record, Bos was given a new, faster bike. Will we see a 9.69 ridden at the Olympics?

    The bike is supposed to have cost 500,000 Euros, if he wins something they're going to give them to the team, if not try looking on ebay
    Apparently even if you put your foot on the bottom bracket and push it doesn't flex.
    I grew up as a kid idolising those hero's in the Tour de France, Indurain and everyone like that. It was almost a childhood dream to ride the Tour de France. The last 2 years my childhood dream which became a reality has been pissed all over by certain members of the peloton. - Bradley Wiggins 27th July 2007.

    Moscow is an extremely fast track-- it's very wide and very steep, so the riders get a lot of help from gravity for their flying 200s. I haven't heard anything about how fast the Beijing track will be.

    Theo's new Koga is pretty sweet. Its very heavily influenced by the BT but probably a bit lighter and being its a one of a kind its definatly fit for that tall bastard!
