In the lead up to the 2012 Olympics, racers, along with the companies and countries they represent, are pulling out all the stops to give themselves the edge going into the big event.
Whether that’s a carbon fiber frame, a 20mm axle set up or top-secret training technique, no stone is going unturned.
To what length are racers going to give themselves an advantage?
Would you believe cloak of invisibility technology?
Cruiser Revolution has uncovered some top-secret spy photos of a racer (nationality unknown) using the cloak of invisibility.
Check out this photo taken at a top-secret training facility in remote area somewhere in Nevada. The red bike is clearly being piloted by an invisible man!
Rumors have been circulating in the smoke-filled backrooms of the BMX industry about how long this technology has been in the works.
No one knows for sure.
But this undated photo clearly shows the unnamed rider piloting an early-90s model Haro. It also highlights how far the technology has come–in the present day — as the cloak of invisibility, in this iteration, clearly can’t quite cover the rider’s 100% cotton riding attire.
Where will we “see” the invisible rider next?
Again, no one knows for sure.
But it may be sooner than we think.
Check out this photo that ABC News confirms was taken from their special doppler radar satellite orbiting Chula Vista, California this weekend. Satellite coordinates indicate it was taken just outside the Olympic Training Center.
The plot thickens.
