Well it is. At 200 MPH it takes only 20 seconds to go a mile. That’s the amount of time it takes the average person to get up from the dinner table and put their dish in the sink. Or to put it another way, that’s 293 feet per second. Can you imagine running a football field in a little over a second?
190-200 MPH. At this speed, every mile per hour is 10 times harder to get than the last one: the bike is 10 times harder to control, requires 10 times the concentration and there’s 10 times the danger something will go wrong.
The Quest for 200. One race to make it happen, the only time you’ll be able to see them in the United States until next year. And by then, you might be too late to see history made.
