It's like painting a window. It only takes me 15 minutes to paint the frame, but it took me hours to scrape, sand, caulk, glaze, and wash. The preparation is the important part. Same with this guy attempting a record.
As freaky as the guy looked with his piercings, he was an athlete. Did you see him stretch before getting on the bike? The techie from Race Tech taking apart and explaining the fork was interesting to me. The guy's mother worked at the ER, and was hoping not to see her son there after the record attempt. And the guy explaining all the things that could go wrong was enlightening. I couldn't care less about stoppies, but I'm going to watch this again on Friday evening.
