Francois Fauvre

in 1934 a French second category professional track cyclist named Francois Fauvre rode the Velocar to record speeds, breaking both the mile and kilometer records of the day. This created a storm of controversy within the UCI. The debate centered on whether the Velocar was a bicycle and if the records were legal. In 1934 the UCI ruled against the Mochet-Faure records, banning recumbent bicycles and aerodynamic devices from racing.
