GREAT to see the penny farthing making a comeback.
Back Paddock cannot understand why it ever went out of fashion - comfort and stability in a bicycle are so overrated.
Anyway, these contestants in the Penny Farthing Championships held in Evandale, Tasmania, at the weekend obviously have the hang of 19th century two-wheeled transport.
The final was raced over 1600m and the winner was Adelaide rider Sean Hennessy.
There is no truth to the rumour Lance Armstrong will try to knock off Sean's crown next year. No performance-enhancing substance could make these things easy to ride.
