The British set a speed record, standing upside down on a motorcycleAugust 20, 2019
Yes, yes, there is such a record called “the fastest headstand.” And that’s exactly what you thought. Marco George really jumped out of the saddle at full speed and, holding on to his hands, became his head on the tank. We do not advise you to repeat this with your (and others’) bikes.
On Saturday, August 17, 2019, Marco accelerated to a top speed of 76.1764 mph at the Straightliners competition at Elvington Airfield in North Yorkshire. The trick, for which the guy was preparing for several years, was filmed and posted on the network. It looks cool and exciting. By the way, George is a robotics engineer by profession, but the Irish media write that he likes to participate in stunt competitions at a semi-professional level.
Guinness World Records have not yet officially ratified the Briton’s achievement, but they are expected to do so soon. The organization told George earlier that the previous speed record was 30 mph.
He hoped to at least double it with his own attempt – but judging by the numbers presented, he was more successful than expected.
His first test showed a speed of 68 mph, but then Straightliners founder Trevor Duckworth suggested trying 70 mph, as this is a national speed limit. But we all now know that he exceeded this mark.
