The bike that cyclist Graeme Obree will ride as he tries to break the world human-powered land speed record has safely arrived in the United States.
Dubbed "The Beastie" by the Scottish rider, the space-age vehicle has already been tested out at Prestwick Airport.
Obree, 47, reckons it will make him the fastest athlete in history.
However, the bike, despite being coated with bulletproof kevlar, now needs a bit of love and care after its journey from Scotland.
Obree is expected this morning in Battle Mountain, Utah - where he will compete against far better-funded cyclists in an effort to break the record.
Obree's manager Charlie Milarvie blogged yesterday: "We've been in USA for a couple of days now. We collected the Beastie from the shipper. Managed some training for an hour on Friday. Saturday morning was devoted to working on The Beastie with a session on the bike in the afternoon.
"The weather is hot and the air is really dry. We head to Battle Mountain today."
The current record is just in excess of 82mph.
