Wonder if this is race legal...

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

If you were on supplemental O2 during a race, you would easily blow through a T size tank. How are you going to carry a T size tank with you on your bike (T size is about 5ft tall, 10" diameter)

taking one breath out of an airtank every once in awhile isn't going to help, it has to be constant.
