He was sooo close to the world record too, although I bet his penny farthing was much lighter than the one used when the record was set 127 years ago :)

Awesome....agreed...its far more impressive what people achieved bitd without all this techno support and low pro aero bars. Hope that hour WR stands forever but im sure Wiggo or the likes will smash it.
