Cycle beats Ferrari; Reaches Over 330kmph

You must have seen so many drag races, where results turned out to be unexpected (a more powerful car losing to a lesser one), but none of those would have been half as exciting as this one. That is because of the fact that this race was not between two sportscars or supercars, but it was a cycle that took on a Ferrari.
Built by Arnold Neracher, the cycle achieved a mind-boggling top-speed of 331Km/h in just 4.8 seconds! Yes you read it right, a cycle that goes faster than some of the most powerful cars out there in the market. The car it took on was a Ferrari F430 Scuderia, and within micro seconds, the cycle left the car way behind.
The cycle is definitely not an ordinary cycle, but a rocket-powered one. The cycle is fuelled by a mix of hydrogen peroxide and compressed air. On November 7, 2014, Francois Gissy reached the speed of 207mph on the cycle developed by his friend Arnold Neracher at a racing circuit in France. With the new record, Gissy broke his previous best of 177.13mph.
Makers of this rocket-powered cycle will now be working on a new bicycle to beat their own record in 2015.
