Humble beginnings…

I just got word from Wim Harwig:

“That young guy you saw at the M5 recumbent-shop in Middelburg is now in a team of young students trying to break the world record. I think you took a photo of him when he was working on his wooden low-racer in the shop. Probably you inspired him as a world record holder too 😉 His name is David Wielemaker.”

Good stuff! That young guy is the guy in the photos below (taken on July 26th 2007).

    Hi Rob,

    Anyone who can chase a dream with such ferocity is an inspiration to all humanity.
    Your visit was indeed inspiring and I will never stop chasing my dreams. The world speed record is now in Dutch hands (try video search for ‘Sebastiaan Bowier’).
