Default 58-year-old American street luge rider break the speed record by going over 100 miles per hour on a Quebec highway

Quote:
Roger Hickey, a former professional skateboard and street luge champion from Huntington Beach, California, clocked in at 100.279 miles per hour
The new speed topped the old record of 97.81 miles per hour, which was achieved by Canadian Cedric Touchette
Hickey is a 20-time world champion in street luge as well as an 18-time world champion in skateboarding

Hickey surpassed the previous record broken in 2008 by Cédric
Touchette of Canada, who rode an amazing 97.81 mph



Hickey tries to put the brakes on by touching his feet to the
pavement


I had no idea that time I rolled down the drive way on a mechanic's dolly was actually a sport.

Watch the way his feet smoke at the end of the video when he begins to slow down.
