By September 10, 2016 2 Comments

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).

Kyle is stoked!

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.

    Hey LGC thank you for sharing this! Kyle is one of the rare male making it in your blog loooool. About challenging him, i have no need to do it. Kyle had this dream since a while, he first skated this road and realized what he was able to achieve and he just worked hard to make it happen. I don’t think that going 89mph was the toughest thing , just the organisation of all of this was a mission and it took about a year to complete it, even though he’s not finished, he wants to go faster than ever and will work harder to beat his own record… i think i have a lot of stress and anxiety coming up again in a close future lol.
