World Record: Bicycle Beats Ferrari In Race (video)

If you think a bicycle can’t beat a Ferrari in a race, this time you might wrong. Maybe you’re wondering how can a normal bike got up to an insane speed and left a Ferrari 430 Scuderia with 650 horsepower (HP) in a race. A French cyclist François Gissy dubbed as ‘rocketman340‘ uploaded a Youtube video the shows how he put a rocket on his bicycle fueled with hydrogen peroxide in order to achieved a speed of 333 km/hr (207 mph). The GPS installed on the bike indicated that it had achieved a top speed of 333 km/hr during the course of the race. Gissy, 32, broke his own record from 7 October 2013, when a top speed of 285 km/h (177.13 mph) was achieved.

According to Gissy:
“If we can find some serious sponsors, then we would like to build a monstrous bicycle, which will be called ‘Spine Crusher. The goal would be to accelerate to more than 400 kph (249 mph) in less than 2 seconds. I just cross my fingers that we will have the green light soon in order to start the construction.”
