Dirk Auer has set a new world record…for insanity.
This past July, the adrenaline junkie raced down the rickety, wooden Mammoth roller coaster at 56mph, in his specially made inline skates. Auer made it through the entire length of the roller coaster (2820 feet) in just over a minute.
"Spending two months planning the outrageous stunt, Mr Auer also designed and made the monster skates, which took him a total of 110 hours' work.
Mr Auer, from Gross-Gerau near Frankfurt, is considered to be the most extreme in-line skater in the world.
He already holds the world record for reaching speeds of 190mph as he was dragged along behind a Porsche GT2."
