Lithuanian stuntman Arunas Gibezha probably felt incredible when in September 2022 he set a new record for the longest journey without hands and on the back wheel.
He participated in the Red Bull show run in Vilnius, Lithuania. Although he has been hatching plans to set this record for some time – and, of course, made sure that people from the Guinness Book of Records were around to witness the attempt — it is not the easiest thing in the world to practice.
To achieve the record, Gibezha had to maintain a constant speed of 70 kilometers per hour throughout the entire run, which was apparently the most difficult part. According to the official judge, who was riding next to him in a jeep, despite the overheating of the brakes at some point, he managed to run a total of 580 meters and 81 centimeters.
Gibezha, who has been riding and performing tricks since he was 10 years old, said that he had dreamed of setting such a world record all his life. He is now 32 years old and a professional Red Bull stuntman, so he still has a lot of time to achieve everything.
“This is exactly what he said to the representatives of the Guinness Book of Records at the event: “If anyone ever breaks this record, I’ll probably try again. Of course, there are a few tricks that are even more difficult to perform, for example, riding a bike backward.”
