Obree is a fascinating man, half athlete half mad scientist. He really embodies the dance between technology and athleticism that's always there in cycling. Sometimes it is about the bike, at least partly. Many of us are interested in the ways that technology can make us faster, Obree more than most and he has the lungs and legs to drive his machines. If he weren't such a singular character, I'd say that cycling needs more Graeme Obrees.

Such a shame he didn't come into the sport 10-15 years earlier, as he probably had the engine to be an excellent pro

Great to see that there is still ambition and fire there even after everything that he's been through.
