Join us for a FREE screening of Battle Mountain - Graeme Obree's Story - on Thursday 7th December.
Battle Mountain follows Scottish cycling legend, double world hour record holder and world 4k pursuit champion Graeme Obree on his quest to challenge the world land speed record at Battle Mountain in Nevada in 2013.
Cycling the bike that he built in his kitchen, his tools of choice were his mind, hands and eyes in preparation for his race against teams employing the latest computer simulation technology and world leading aerodynamics experts.
No wind tunnels, no computer simulations to determine the optimum performance parameters, The Beastie (Graeme’s custom made bike) is designed with one purpose in mind - to go fast, terrifyingly fast, with the rider lying prone, head first - face forward! Where the other riders competing at Battle Mountain are wired into world leading computer technology, Obree faces the challenge down single minded with total belief in the powers of his mind and body.
