Graeme Obree is a cycling legend whom revolutionized the sport twice. He broke Moser’s world hour track record by more than 400 meters using his home-made bicycle called “Old Faithful”. His record lasted less than a week before Chris Boardman broke it by more than 600 meters difference. But, Obree took Boardman’s title of the world champ in 1993 by winning the 4000m Pursuit. Hey, that is history.
