Some people try to ice skate uphill, some people think they can talk to animals and Wayne Mahomet likes to drop off stupendous heights.
The bonkers former trials champion holds the Guiness World Record for the longest vetical drop on a bike, with a bone crunching descent of more than 4 metres. Skip to 4.10 to see it in all its glory.
“Wayne admits it was ‘a bit of impulsive’ to attempt the challenge, especially considering he’d sustained a nasty shin injury.”
Wayne admits it was “a bit of impulsive” to attempt the challenge, especially considering he’d had almost no practice and sustained a nasty shin injury earlier on the day of the attempt.
The previous record, held by Wayne’s 3Sixty team mate Ian Drummond stood for 10 years and Wayne is confident that his will last for a while too.
However, if he could stick this effort, Dale Armstrong looks like he could give the current king of the drop a run for his money.
