Was he the guy that was interviewed on the cycling show that has a little unorthodox road bike set up that was very effective ?

Anyone have a link to his road training bike specs ?

Or was I dreaming it :?

Keep forgetting to pick up his book. Be interested to see what parts of his emotional rollercoaster of a life are acurate.

Wasnt untill recently I found out "the flying scotsman" was infact english by birth.

Either way he did things his way! Legend.

I went to a presentation from him about six months ago. Fascinating history. Be good to see him succeed in his new record attempt.
