It Takes a Special Kind of Crazy to Pilot a Rocket-Powered Bicycle to 207 MPH in Less Than Five Seconds

This lunatic Frenchman clocked the quarter mile in less than seven seconds on his bicycle.

Cries of Zut Alors! were ringing around the Circuit Paul Ricard last week after Frenchman Francois Gissy piloted his rocket-powered bicycle to a record-breaking speed of 207 mph. While showing a Ferrari 430 Suderia who’s boss, Nissy destroyed his old record of 163 mph on the rocket-propelled bike designed by his friend Arnold Neracher. The quarter mile was reached in less than seven seconds, while the 207-mph record speed was attained at around the 250-meter, five-second mark.

Cheer Bravo for the record run here. And remember, don't try this at home.
