Neil Smashes Land Speed Record on a Bike<-- Back to News Page August 21, 2019
We are very proud of our very own, Neil Campbell, who on Saturday 17th August 2019, broke a men’s world record for the fastest speed on a bike. Astonishingly, Neil was clocked at 174 mph, smashing the previous record of 167 mph, which was set 24 years ago by Dutchman, Fred Rompelberg.
Neil broke the world record using a custom-bike, built by Moss Bikes, based on the design of a tandem. He was pulled along by a powerful Porsche Cayenne, before then being released so he went through the timing gate under his own power.
He will be planning to try to reach 220mph next year on a six-mile track at the Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah, USA, which is also the location where American Denise Mueller-Korenek set the all-time record last year, reaching a speed of 184mph.
We will be excited to have Neil back in the office, but appreciate he now will have certain media responsibilities to attend to first !!
