Plantation biker Zach Hutlelin breaks world record

Plantation biker Zach Hutlelin breaks world record.

Zach Hutlelin, 16, of Plantation crosses the line to break the record for a "manual," a wheelie without pedaling, at Markham Park in Sunrise. Hutlelin later went on to set a new record od 686.25 feet, more than twice distance of the the old record.


Pedaling his Specialized P3 bicycle as hard as he could, Zach Hutelin popped the front wheel into the air.

Coasting down the road past safety cones and amid clapping and screams, he finally lost his balance at 686.25 feet, breaking a Guinness World Record.

"It's something I've been wanting for a while and now it's something that's been witnessed," he said, beaming.

Plantation biker Hutelin, 16, rode down a strip of road by the model airplane field at Markham Park in Sunrise surrounded by friends, family and supporters from the biking community. He worked on his manual – a wheelie without pedaling – for two months to break the 2008 world record of 334 feet. He was inspired by the MTV show "Nitro Circus," a show featuring extreme sports, and he got to talking with Guinness World Records.
