Graham Obree's attempt on the one hour record is off.

Sad news over on Bike Radar, where cycling legend and multiple world record holder Graham Obree has confirmed that he won't be making a new attempt on the World Hour record after all. The Scottish cyclist said that after his homemade bike, which had been performing excellently on the road, proved too uncomfortable to ride on the banking during trials at the Manchester velodrome, he was forced to concede defeat. Still, the guy is an absolute legend, and deserves way more recognition than he gets.

ER Doctor seriously injures two cyclists!!!


In Brentwood California two cyclists were seriously injured when an ER doctor, Christopher Thompson passed them and slammed on his breaks to, "teach them a lesson" as Thompson told the police officer following the incident. On Monday, Nov 2, Thompson was convicted of assault with a deadly weapon, mayhem, and other serious charges listed bellow.

Count 1: Reckless Driving Causing Specified Injury (victim: Ron Peterson)
Count 2: Battery with Serious Bodily Injury (victim: Ron Peterson)
Count 3: Battery with Serious Bodily Injury (victim: Christian Stoehr)
Count 4: Reckless Driving (victims: Patrick Watson and Josh Crosby)
Count 5: Assault with a Deadly Weapon (victim: Ron Peterson)
NOTE: The jury also found that the defendant had committed a Special Allegation of "Causing Great Bodily Injury"
Count 6: Assault with a Deadly Weapon (victim: Christian Stoehr)
NOTE: The jury also found that the defendant had committed a Special Allegation of "Causing Great Bodily Injury"
Count 7: Mayhem

The range of penalty is anywhere from probation to 10 years in prison. The defense in apparently readying to submit an enormous number of letter supporting the defendant. To counter this and to represent the cyclists' mindset, please think about writing a letter to express your opinions regarding this matter so that the judge will have both sides of the issue clearly present. The District Attorney's Office is collecting these statements in support of the cyclists. She plans to submit the letters with the motion at the end of next week so we encourage you to submit a letter to her in a timely fashion so that she can include it in her packet to the judge.
