Thought it was time to share another record with you from our amazing world:
LEEDS, UK, Aaron Stannage from Barnsley, South Yorkshire, cycled for more than eight miles (13km) on one wheel at the John Charles Stadium – setting the world record for the Longest bicycle wheelie.
He said he was kept entertained by listening to Linkin Park and the Prodigy while circling the track. “I nearly lost it a couple of times but I just put it behind me and carried on,” Aaron said after his wheelie marathon.
He cycled for one hour to complete the world’ record. He is the son of a stuntman, and said he felt “cool” to have set the world record for the Longest bicycle wheelie. During his record attempt, Aaron circled an indoor racing track more than 90 times while listening to his iPod to pass the time. Aaron’s father, Mark Stannage, said he was “chuffed to death” with his son’s efforts. That’s going to take some beating by anybody,” he said. Family and friends watched Aaron as he completed more than 90 laps of a track at the John Charles Stadium. Aaron, who started his professional stunt career at the age of three, has already featured in a number of TV shows and has a range of skills including karate, scuba diving, trampoline, horse riding and motocross. Aaron Stannage is a rider with “The Stannage International Stunt Team”. He has travelled extensively throughout the United Kingdom performing to audiences of thousands. His work has also taken him throughout Europe ie: France, Belgium, Holland and Germany, where he has performed many of his stunts. The previous Guinness world record for the Longest bicycle wheelie was 1.5 miles.
So until next time have an awesome weekend, Joe
