In the Crim Festival of Races, they send scout cyclists out ahead all of the runners to clear the lanes of pedestrians and slower racers from earlier races.

The only group that causes major problems is the hand cyclists – those that don’t have the use of their legs…

They’re so fast, the race committee has to use local pro cyclists to stay ahead of them. They finish the ten mile course in just over 25 minutes.

That’s fast, baby.

*One of the guys I ride with on Tuesday night paces the runners – he was telling me about how he tried once to pace the hand cyclists and ended up drafting off the leader to keep up.

    Not only is that amazing, it doesn’t make sense. Are their bikes that much more aerodynamic? How can someone be faster with their arms? Regardless of how, it is very impressive.
