Editor's Note: In the last few days of 2010 we're pleased to feature some of the most interesting and noteworthy stories of the year. Today we continue with a classic man (read triathlete) vs. machine race.
305 Horsepower...that's how much power the 2010 Subaru STI puts out to all four wheel at maximum velocity. There can be no doubt that the Subaru STI is one of the fastest production Rally cars you can buy today.
.5 Horsepower...that's how much power U.S. Olympian and triathlete Matt Reed puts out to the rear wheel of his bike on a typical training ride. There can be no doubt that Matt Reed is one of the fastest American triathletes racing today.
So which one is faster: the man or the machine?
This may seem like a silly question, but you'll be surprised by the results.
Watch the video as we pit one of the fastest American triathletes against one of the fastest production Rally cars available today.
