Gabriola Built Cycle Sets Another Record


132.6 KM/H Speed Record

Sept. 15 at Battle Mountain Nevada saw Sam Whittington hang onto his speed record by blazing through the course at 132.6 km/h in the Varna Tempest bike.

His Varna partner Barbara Bautois of France set a new woman's record at 116.6 km/h during the same event.

The recumbent bikes are built by Gabriola builder/sculptor Georgi Geogiev using high tech materials such as carbon fibre and kevlar.
