Francois Gissy made it just a little more difficult for anyone to snatch his world record title for fastest biking: he hit 207 mph — riding a bike with a rocket strapped to it.

He did it at the motor sport racetrack Circuit Paul Ricard in the south of France on Friday. Gissy accelerated from 0 to 207 mph in fewer than 5 seconds on the rocket-powered peddler, beating his own record of 163 mph, which he set last year. His record last year topped the previous record of 150 mph set in 2002.

Watch this epic world-record setting feat as Gissy advances from 0 to 207 in the same time it takes you to tie your shoe:
