infinity backs world record attempt

Infinity Motorcycles is backing an attempt to break the Guinness World Record for the “Fastest Monowheel Motorcycle” – a one-wheeled vehicle designed so the rider sits either within or next to the wheel.

Lincolnshire-based stunt rider Tom ‘the atom’ Anable will attempt to beat the current record of 65mph – set by Kevin Scott of the UK Monowheel Team – at The Straightliners Yorkshire Mile event, taking place at Elvington Airfield on 16/17 May.

Anable, who held a previous record of 60.1mph for just one day, will be competing on his new monowheel – currently under construction – called ‘An Atomic Infinity’. He must ride it over a flying 1/4 mile in two directions within one hour to give an average speed greater than the existing record.

The 30-year-old from Winterton builds and rides his own monowheels and pedal monocycles, and, alongside his record attempts, plans to promote monowheel racing as a widely accepted form of motorsport.

Rob Puttick, director of Infinity Motorcycles – which has 12 motorcycle clothing and accessory showrooms across the UK, plus a nationwide mail order service – says; “We’re really excited about getting involved in a British attempt to set a new Guinness World record, although I prefer to have two wheels on the road when I’m riding!”
