Congratulations to Sam Wakeling (UK), we have a new 100 mile world record!
Sam unicycled 100 miles in 6hrs 18min 13s at the Croft Circuit race track, in Darlington, UK. The previous record of 6hrs 44min 22s was set in 1987 by Takayuki Koike (Japan).
Read about Sam’s world record attempt here: http://100.samwakeling.com/ and on the unicyclist.com forums
Sam rode a geared Schlumpf 36″ Unicycle with 145mm cranks.
Roger Davies was making a simultaneous 100 mile record attempt at the same circuit, on an ungeared 36″ unicycle. Unfortunately, after being ahead of the previous record mark, Roger had to abandon his attempt. Hopefully we’ll see another ungeared record attempt from Roger in future!
Please support their charity, Water Aid. They have raised over £500 so far.

The 100 mile record has stood for over a quarter century, and is one of the toughest records in unicycling. It has had several attempts on it since Takayuki Koike (Japan) set the record in 1987, and still stands at 6hrs44min22s.
On the 9 July, Sam Wakeling and Roger Davies will be attempting the world record. Sam will be riding a geared 36″, while Roger will be attempting the record on an ungeared 36″.
