Twice the Hour Record holder and twice World Champion in the 4,000m Pursuit, Graeme Obree knows a thing or two about racing against the clock. He’s clearly keen to give something back to the time trial community too, as this morning he retweeted a photo of himself marshalling the Scottish National 25 Mile Time Trial Championships.
Would seeing this man at a junction be inspiring or would it merely serve as a reminder of your shortcomings?
Perhaps you simply wouldn’t believe your eyes.

Graeme Obree’s Battle Mountain film, which follows his attempt to break the International Human Powered Vehicle Association’s speed record in 2013, is now available for download. A DVD is also said to be in the pipeline.
The Scottish National Time Trial Championships are taking place today in Irvine. They had originally been due to take place on June 4 but were rescheduled after the Ayrshire Roads Alliance, on behalf of East Ayrshire Council, announced “essential maintenance works” to be carried out on the A71 a week beforehand.
