Well done Masahi Ishii

Masahi Ishii won the 1km time trial at the Beijing Paralympics in a time of 1.08.771 on Tuesday. An amazing time. This guy rides in the cerebral palsy category, and yet he can ride a kilometer in a time more than one second under the time a rider must do to qualify as a keirin rider.

Ishii actually was a keirin rider before a car hit him, leaving him injured. The amazing thing is he's riding as fast, or faster, than many current pros.

Well done Ishii.

Nice blog... I'll be riding a keirin 1000TT 2000TT and a keirin on Sep 21.
At Omiya keirin track... I'll do my best to beat my last attempt of 1:24....don't think I'll beat 1:08 though.
