His fame precedes him because there certainly is no one like the great Usain Bolt. This is why everything he does, comes under the scanner. Fans were nothing less than surprised when the Jamaican sprinter was spotted riding a motorcycle, right after his triple victory, giving rise to the notion that Usain Bolt may now be looking to move into a faster lane.
Catching the News Fresh
Known for being the fastest runner there is, Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt was spotted trying to master the art of balancing on two wheels, right after his Olympic achievements in Rio. Having embarked on a UK visit right after that, it was in London that he was spotted trying to ride the bike.
Perhaps another reason why this is creating such massive headlines is because none of his coaches or sponsors would have let him go anywhere near a motorbike before his Rio performance. But now, after he took away the gold in the 100m, 200m as well as the 4x 100m race for the third successive time in the Olympic, his move to turn toward bike riding will certainly not be questioned.
Although speculations as to whether Usain Bolt is thinking of changing gears is abounding in the industry, the pictures do not say enough to get people worrying. Numerous pictures that were clicked of him taking instructions in riding, were what gave rise to all these speculations.
Could Usain Take Up Bike Racing?
Those who stayed to watch the great man learn to ride stated that he navigated the bike steadily around the traffic cones. Decked up in a hi-vis jacket fitted with L plates, he looked all ready to take on a challenge. The bike he chose to practice with had a speed capacity of 120 mph, costing about £ 6,649 on the road. That speed is certainly far more than he is accustomed to, especially on a track.
After all the pressure that he underwent in the event, to get his name noted down in history, he now seems to be catching up with those many things that he never even thought of trying before. Not only has the sprinter let his non-existent locks down but he is swaying to the relaxing tone of the moment, with no intention of moving into the fast lane.
The Buzz Round the Celebrity Sprinter
The bike experiment isn’t the only thing Bolt has been tampering with. Just recently, he was spotted visiting a nightclub and leaving with a group of scantily dressed females. On reaching his apartment, he reportedly allowed them to catch a glimpse of his many gold medals only if, they gave him a boob flash in return.
At another instant, he received a bill £ 12,000 after partying till dawn, at the Libertine nightclub in London. While the entire capital is talking about him having fun, his girlfriend Kasi Bennett was not all that pleased with it.
However, it isn’t much about moving into the fast lane or creating headlines for this star, he is just thrilled to have achieved his goal and he says that feeling is not just unreal but overwhelming for him. So all of this just seems like Bolt’s way of de-stressing and making up for all that he has been missing out on thus far.
