5 people in the world have cracked the elusive 10 second barrier for 200m.
ON A BICYCLE.
An average of 72.5kph... A speed I'm happy to reach coming DOWN Col D'Kinglake.
Equally karazy is the geometry on this custom 3Rensho made for Gary Neiwands third and final season on the International Keirin circuit.
Few internationals have won the series. Gary won it three times.
Even though Gary supplied the measurements to Yoshi Konno, the resulting frame was too big. He rode it anyway and still won.
DH remembers an article in Bicycling Australia with a picture of this bike 10 years ago. The article remrking how Gary used to apply fake tan to give the impression he'd been riding/t.t.t.raining a lot. A principle adopted still in Melburn.
When I asked the V-train what events he was enteres in for the Masters championships the first thing he mentioned was coming up against his childhood hero in the match sprints. Neiwand.
An Australian cyling legend, and a legendary Keirin frame builder fused.
I felt compelled to build this up FULLY NJS, and take it to the beach!
