World record speed for standard mountain bikes on gravel

Austria’s Max Stockl has broken the world record speed for standard mountain bikes on gravel in the Atacama Desert.

In ideal conditions the 42-year-old reached a top speed of over 167 km per hour, (104 miles per hour), on his run down a mountain in the Chilean desert.

After years of preparation Stockl’s V-Max project came to fruition, on the 1200-metre, (3,937 feet), long slope, a new world record.
