The 'human bobsled' is actually Jean-Yves Blondeau aka Rollerman

The rider should be shot, losing to someone with nothing but gravity powering them....

Most of the action shots looked like the motorcyclist was running about 20 MPH. They didn't tell you that this guy has never ridden before.

Press Any Key To Continue.

Rigged. That's my guess. This race was set up for Rollerman to win. Imagine the chicken strips on those tires.

just imagine a 599 that stays completly vertical in the corners, a hot asain flag girl, a lot of annoying annoucing, and a guy w/ wheels every where on his body out running a 599, even on the straights...

That was BS. Even I could have beat that guy on an HD Sportster. Starting off corners on the inside......Lets invite both of them to the states.

There is no way a motorcycle could "win" that race. If he got to the finish line first he beat a frenchman ... wearing a rollersuit. Whoopee. If he didn't, well, he was beaten by a Frenchman ... in a rollersuit! I just hope he got paid a bundle to throw the race.

If it has already been done, it is safe to assume it is possible to do it.
On the other hand, if it has not been done never assume it is impossible to do it.
