The Flying Scotsman


Recently, I had the opportunity to see a movie about Graeme Obree. In the 90's, Graeme went for world hour record and held it twice. It was very interesting to see how Graeme trained and broke the record, but the movie also got into his continuing battle with depression, his unusual riding positions (Graeme was the inovator of the "superman" style, which was used extensively in the 90's until it was banned by the powers that be), his bike design and build to create "old faithful", and how the UCI screwed him every chance they got.

If you get the chance, check this film out. It's good for something to do a rainy afternoon.

On a different note, I was just made aware of this new band called Chickenfoot. It's made up of Sammy Hagar & Michael Anthony (Van Halen), Chad Smith (Red Hot Chilli Peppers), adn Joe Satriani. Talk about a super group! Check these guys out!

Thanks for the suggestion Craigers. I would love to check out that movie. In fact, I just added to my NetFlix queue.

Have a great week!
