Graeme Obree the ‘Flying Scotsman’
Graeme Obree is an author, commentator and ex professional cyclist. He exploded to prominence on 17th July 1993 when he broke the UCI World Hour Record on the bike he hand build, ‘Old Faithful’. His hour record was broken a week later but Obree went onto regain the record and to become the UCI world pursuit champion twice. His autobiography “The Flying Scotsman” inspired a movie of the same name. He published his acclaimed training manual, “The Obree Way” in 2011. In 2013 he established a new world prone recumbent speed record riding Beastie, in Battle Mountain, which inspired the documentary film, Battle Mountain – Graeme Obree’s Story.
