5月1日上午，12届世界冠军Ot Pi将使用Monty Camel 221障碍单车攀登上海金茂大厦2008级台阶，庆祝北京奥运会的到来。Ot Pi的此次活动作为挂车前的终极挑战，目标是无触地攀登至楼顶，并力争打破原有纪录41分57秒。以下是极浪(Xbreaker)在活动举办前对Ot Pi的探访内容。
Xbreaker - 这次攀登金茂大厦是否你职业生涯中最大的一次挑战?
Ot Pi: 这不是最难的，不过是我30年运动生涯后的最后一次。
Xbreaker - 为挑战成功都做了哪些准备?
Ot Pi: 说起来有点复杂：一是我的日程较紧，我必须在担任Monty总经理职务之余抽出时间训练，另外恢复左膝和右手的伤病也耽误不少时间。目前我每天上午在类似金茂的楼梯用Monty驼峰单车训练，在中午前完成2000级台阶，每天的耗时在缩短。
Xbreaker - 你有信心打破41分57秒的纪录吗?
Ot Pi: 这是我的首要目标，不管怎样，现在说还为时过早，恢复伤病也耽误了不少时间。
Xbreaker - 这次挑战可否视为你的告别演出?
Ot Pi: 我在今年二月巴塞罗纳室内摩托障碍赛上宣布退役，在此前一个礼拜，我得知有机会在上海攀登金茂大厦迎接北京奥运会，这将是我最后一次参加公开活动，具有非常特殊的意义。
Xbreaker - 是否和谁打过赌?
Ot Pi: 我知道已经有一些相关的竞猜网页，我唯一和金茂的总监打过赌，他说我不行，我当然相反。我离开赛场有一段时间而且没有足够的训练，但有必要尝试一下。
Xbreaker - 对于将参与这项运动的选手有何建议?
Ot Pi: 首先，我想说障碍单车是一项有点难度的运动项目，非常经济且没有危险，需要说明的是很多都是业余爱好者，人们参与其中是因为喜欢而不是成为职业。现在障碍单车运动遇到了最好的时机，转化而来的街式障碍为这项运动打开了一个巨大的市场。
The next 1th of May, Ot Pi will try to break the record to the Jim Mao Tower record ascent, located in Shanghai. Ot, with the new 221 Kamel, is to try to get up the 2.008 steps without letting any dab on the ground. Here, we advance a small previous interview to the event:
Xbreaker - Is this event to be the greatest challenge that you have been ever faced in your professional life?
Ot Pi: It is not to be the greatest one, but, yes, the last one, after thirty years in the world of the competition.
Xbreaker - What type of preparation are you making in order to get this challenge to be a success ?
Ot Pi: Really, it is being a little complicated by two reasons: One by my schedule daily time, since I must arrange the training with my position as a General Manager of Monty and en plus, I shall recover myself from two injuries having made me lose much of the scheduled preparation time ( inflammation of the left knee and a sinew problem on the right hand). Now, my daily preparation is concentrated in a spinning session, very similar to the ascent of the tower by the mornings, and before lunch to get up 2.000 steps with the kamel with less time every day.
Xbreaker - Do you think to lower the present record, being at 41 min. and 57 sec?
Ot Pi: This is my main objective, however, it is not possible to say anything now due the great delay on my preparation caused by my two injuries.
Xbreaker - Can we say that this challenge is to be a kind of a great farewell to the bicycle ?
Ot Pi: I announced my retirement at the performance that I did in the Trial Indoor Barcelona in February of the present year, but one week before of the great event in Barcelona, I was proposed the possibility of getting the tower of Shanghai, on the occasion of the Olympic Games and it was not possible from my side to say: No. It will be my last day performing on a bicycle in a public event and by sure it is to more special than a great event.
Xbreaker - Have you being proposed to any kind of bet if you are going to get it or not?
Ot Pi: I have been told that there are already Web Sites about this matter, at the moment , the only bet that I have from my side is with the Tower Director: a simple supper, he says no and me yes. It is necessary to say that I could make a try , some days ago and I could not get at the top. That is why the Tower Director did not see it very clear. I had not trained and it is a long time that I am out from the competition.
Xbreaker - What advice would you give to the just initiated and future riders of this sport?
Ot Pi: First, I would say that the BikeTrial sport is one of the most complete sports existing together with swimming and scaling . It is an economic sport and nothing dangerous, and mainly to let clear that it is an amateur sport. they have to take it because they like it and no as a professional sport. Now, the sport of BikeTrial is in its best moments, thanks to the new modality of the Street Trials which is opening a great market.
