That’s right, Markus Stockl broke the world bike speed record last week, hitting 130.7mph going down a snow slope in Chile. Video after the break.

Markus-who is also a Red Bull Air Races pilot-crushed his own record by 14.3mph. It’s not the 152.2mph that Olympic cyclist John Howard got in 1985, pedaling behind a 500hp car at Bonneville Salt Flats, but his 40-second run down that slippery slope captured on video sure looks a lot scarier
