Short Film – Graham Obree, Athlete or Genius?
Athlete or Genius? Graeme Obree shot to fame in the early 90s after twice breaking the world hour record on a bike he’d built using parts from an old washing machine.
The debate has never been settled on whether the success of this mercurial Scottish cyclist came from his cycling position or his athleticism. Until now. Endura brings Obree to the wind tunnel and tests the real advantage or otherwise of his crouch and superman positions, which were subsequently banned by the UCI.
