Can you say ' Permanent Damage' ?
Read on fella's .... i can't wit to get your reactions to this stunt:

Spinning record
Italian ultra-cyclist Alessandro Colo has set a new record for riding an indoor bike (spinning), doing so for 201 hours, 1 minute and 8 seconds between December 27, 2004 and January 4, 2005. Colo covered 5819 km in his stationary ride, and along the way lowered his previous record time for 5000 km to 174 hours, 12 minutes and 29 seconds. Everything was checked with an odometer and an ergometer and during the rides he only stopped briefly to use the bathroom.

I'll start with.. WHY ?

I think he must've already suffered permanent brain damage. Why else would he attempt such a freak task?

I'm 45 minutes on a trainer, tops.
