Nicaragua is known as a poor country but I’m really surprised by how upbeat and nice these people are. We will try to set a new world record with a normal bike. You can buy this one at any shop. It has hydraulic brakes just like a motorbike only a little bit lighter and smaller. We use these special profile tires so the brakes work well. Before the start you have to calmly check that everything works. And then you put on your helmet, focus on the line and… let go.
