Mountain bike speed

Bike Hits 130.7 mph. On Snow! Wired news has a story about a 33 year old that smashed the World Speed Record for series mountain bikes. Austrian Markus Stoeckl broke the 8 year old record on a 2000 meter, 45 degree run in the Chilean Alps. Because of the extreme cold, he had to hold his breath for the 40 second duration so his helmet didn't fog up.

Now that would be a rush!
