There has been screaming and whooping here amongst the UK longboard community in honour of our very own Pete Connolly totally smashing the world speed record at this year’s l’Ultime Descente World Speed Challenge. Here we replicate the latest press release from the organisers. Full interviews to follow!
The UK’s Pete Connolly is now the fastest guy on a skateboard – 91.17mph (146.73kph) and new Guinness World Record holder after completing this year’s L’Ultime Descente in Canada. We also hear from L’Ultime Decente first-timers Aaron Skippings, who reached just over 78mph (126.16kph) and Kami San (listen to our interview), who reached 76mph (123.85kph).
