New speed World record: 143.89 Km/h!
In case you haven’t heard the news, Kyle Wester broke the Speed World Record on a skateboard by reaching 143.89 Km/h (89.41mph). The previous record was held at 130.63 Km/h (81.17mph). Check the epic footage!
Funny this came out this past week as this weekend Red Bull is hosting in Canada an invite-only event called Top Speed Challenge. The current IDF Women’s World Champion Emily Pross is over there and yesterday reached 116.19 Km/h (72.2mph).
Will the record be broken this weekend? Will it be Emily breaking it? Is Spoky (Marie Bougourd, Kyle’s wife and a fast DH rider herself ) be the one challenging her husband? Emily threw a nice hint in one of Marie’s post about Kyle’s achievement.
Haha. This above. So yeah, who’s next?! Keep pushing your limits and setting new standards!
