holy f-ing crap

Taylor Phinney is an alien.
19 years old, just rode a 4:15 pursuit to win the Copenhagen World Cup. That's a time fast enough to win every World Championship since 1996 (when Boardman used the now illegal "superman" position).
He rode a 1:08 starting kilo, then a 1:04, 1:02, 1:01.

WTF. No one does that.

4:15 would have placed him 8th in the Team Pursuit in Beijing. By himself.
