Fast Freddy Markham was back in the office today after two weeks on the road. After he and his company, Easy Racer Recumbent Bicycles, enjoyed all the attention they got at Interbike, he then raced at Battle Mountain. His 77 mph speed through the traps solidified his position as the 3rd fastest man in the world.
And yet there again, Freddy, the first man to exceed 65 miles an hour on a bicycle, may very well still be the world's quickest if you measure speed by how long you can maintain that speed. This LA Times article, talks about all the big guns in HPV racing today and how it was Freddy, at the end of the day, who stood tall above all of them as the true Champion of Champions. After covering 53.43 miles in One Hour's time, Freddy may quite arguably be the Fastest Human Being on the Planet!!
