Video: Rocket powered bicycle travels over 300-km/h & sets new record
Watch as a rocket powered bicycle leaves a Ferrari 430 Scuderia behind in a drag race while setting a new world record…
Last Friday, November 7, the world saw a new record broken in France when Frenchman François Gissy managed to speed up to 333-km/h (207-mp/h) on his rocket-propelled bicycle designed by his friend Arnold Neracher.
It really an impressive feat, especially when you see just how powerful the bike is in the video below.
Here’s a look at what the video’s uploader, Rocketman340, had to say on YouTube: “On November 7th of 2014, on the famous Circuit Paul Ricard located at Le Castellet in South of France, François Gissy reached an incredible speed of 333 km/h on the rocket-propelled bicycle designed by his friend Arnold Neracher.
“More than 300 km/h on a skinny and completely stripped bicycle, this is amazing, and crazy! Who thought that one day a daredevil on a bicycle, with a rocket under the saddle, could travel the quarter mile in less than 7 seconds?”
