Dutch cyclist claims new world speed record in Nevada

Dutch cyclist Sebastiaan Bowier has pedalled his way into the record books, becoming the fastest ever cyclist in a human powered vehicle.

He pedalled the special bike known as Velo X3 along one of the smoothest roads in the world, in Nevada USA.
Reaching a top speed of over 83 miles per hour, Sebastiaan broke the previous record set in 2009 by a Canadian cyclist.
Odd bike, isn't it?
