Roller skater ‘beats’ 600cc sports bike

Published: 09 August 2007

French stuntman Jean-Yves Blondeau kitted himself out with roller skates on his feet, knees, chest and hands to race a Honda CBR600 on Japanese television – and was credited with a win.

Blondeau was wearing his own home-made ‘super-impact’ suit for the downhill race aired last week.

His win may have been helped by the fact the Honda barely got out of third gear.
