Record attempt with a Porsche 935

At the end of the 1970s, Jean-Claude Rude pursued his dream of becoming the fastest cyclist in the world: 240 km/h was the breathtaking speed that the French professional cyclist was aiming to beat – in the slipstream of a Porsche 935 Turbo. Racing driver Henri Pescarolo, who was behind the wheel of the Porsche still remembers it as if it were yesterday.
