Coasting Record

I smashed my coasting record by 10 metres the other day and was able to catch it on camera. Just wondering what the actaul record is?

Here is a link of the video.

I am extremely impressed. That has to be an awesome feeling. I hope to try it someday, but you can bet my body will be much better protected than yours when I do. :astonished:

Trev,

The current posted world record for track coasting is 143.55 meters. It was set by Kato Yuichiro from Japan at UNICON VIII in Surrey, UK in 1996.

Can you provide a more common or older video format than .wmv
(application/x-ms-wmv) such as .avi or an older .mov?
