He won 19 Classics victories in all and during the hour record challenge he covered 49.431 km at high altitude in Mexico City.

2nd video discuss about the perfect design aerodynamic bike that produce world fastest cycling speed and the technology, material used to build the bike. This video also talks about bike designer’s view for designing a bike.

3rd video is about Physiology. Physi is what you look like (for eg your body size) and how it impact you; While physiology is whats’ inside you that affect your performance such as heart rate.
