Cycling Race

The thrill of the race resonates through the twists and turns as onlookers applaud the fighting spirit of the fast pedaling pursuers while official vehicles travel the track trailing from behind. Excitement abounds with the rush of motion and melodious merriment mounting with each pass the cyclists make along the arduous avenues lined with worried and whimsical sports fans. Shortly after the introduction of bicycles, competitions developed independently in many parts of the world. Large races became popular during the 1890s "Golden Age of Cycling", with events across Europe, and in the U.S. and Japan as well. In 1899, Mile-a-Minute Murphy became the first man to ride his bicycle a mile in under a minute. The price of a new bicycle can range from US$50 to more than US$20,000, with the highest priced bike in the world being the custom Madone by Damien Hirst, sold for $500,000 USD.
