Return of the Flying Scotsman

I really enjoyed reading the Graeme Obree biography, The Flying Scotsman, a few years ago and will be watching his attempt at the land speed record with massive interest.

I genuinely admire his outlook and find him a pretty fascinating character, a real maverick and critical thinker. I’d highly recommend his biography which includes the story of his world hour record on a bicycle he designed and built himself and his subsequent battles with the UCI and his stance against drugs in sport, especially pertinent given the recent Lance Armstrong shit fight.
