The 24 hr official record beaten at 2.37pm (457kms). 5.25 hours ahead of the 24 hr cutoff. There's a pending 24hr record at 523kms which we think he will get at 6pm. Now let's see where he can take the 48 hr.

He has his sights on doing 1000km by 48 hours which I think very soon. He Is lapping at 51secs and he is 90secs ahead of his goal. He has ave 20.6km/h so far, which is insane on a mtb over this length of time

The current record for 48h is 746km

There is a guy with a pending record of 811km

Pinky wants 1000km

I don't know how to post photos here but it is a giant xtc, looks like XT kit on it and he has a Garmin something arather on it. It can only be a standard purchased bike so it can't be lowered, suped up or run areo bars

Unbelievable.

The man is certainly determined ( or insane ).

I still think his legacy will be being mistaken for a "hot chick in pink" when he did Kona.

Great stuff.

Insane.

 

Well done.

 

Any truth to the rumour he was wearing a straight jacket at the time?

Thanks everyone.

 

I have to do a race report for Guinness, so I'll copy it here as well for anyone interested.

I love this stuff. I struggle to mentally do 30km on a velodrome!! I did 170km once for IM training - never ever again!

 

Great effort!

Awesome ride!

 

What gearing did you have for the race? Surely you would have only needed a few gears.

 

And how the eff did you stay awake without hallucinating.

About 60% of the time I was in 34/13. The first 12hrs and the last 2hrs were spent mostly in the 34/11. Most likely, had I had larger gearing, I'd burn the legs.

 

I'm naturally a poor sleeper. Generally 4-5 hrs night. I did start getting the 'sleep monsters about midnight the second night, where I did take more frequent breaks, but once the sun came up, I felt fresher.
