This Guy Strapped Rockets To His Bike And Went 207 MPH In 5 Seconds

Rocket man.

Watch French cyclist Fran├žois Gissy go from 0 to 207 MPH in less than 5 seconds on a rocket-propelled bicycle, shattering the world speed record.

The bike was constructed by friend and designer Arnold Neracher. It was stripped down to its bare, lightweight frame for optimal aerodynamics and fitted with three high-powered rockets.

One mistake and Gissy could easily have been killed. Check out the heartstopping video of his record-breaking ride below, filmed at the Circuit Paul Ricard in the South of Frace, where Gissy and his rocket-bike leave a Ferrari in the dust.
