Rider’s mind-bending speed
Spoonbender Uri Geller exercised mind over matter to help a cyclist shatter a record.
He yelled support yesterday as Bruce Bursford set a new world record speed for nonstop cycling for 60 minutes.
The cyclist rode his customdesigned static roller machine at an average of 121.9 mph breaking the previous record which had stood at 34.1 mph.
Bursford, aged 38, has been training for four years for the event – in the 24 hours before the attempt he consumed 10,000 calories.
Bursford’s record, which was set on static rollers at the Brooklands Aviation and Motor Museum, in Weybridge, Surrey, was performed on the Ultimate Bike, which he designed.
He used the bike, which weighs less thank 11 lbs, earlier this year to become the holder of the solo cyclist absolute speed world record, reaching 210.2 mph.

“Uri Geller gave an absolutely resonating talk on his life and career. He had every single magician in the room on the edge of their seats trying to digest as much information as they could. Uri emphasized that the path to frame is through uniqueness and charisma and that professional entertainers must be creative in their pursuits of success and never shy away from publicity.”

“The man is a natural magician. He does everything with great care, meticulous misdirection and flawless instinct. The nails are real, the keys are really borrowed, the envelopes are actually sealed, there are no stooges, there are no secret radio devices and there are no props from the magic catalogues.”

“Eternity is down the hall And you sit there bending spoons In your mind, in your mind”
“I Have watched Uri Geller… I have seen that so I am a believer. It was my house key and the only way I would be able to use it is get a hammer and beat it out back flat again.”
