GUINNESS WORLD RECORD
Arūnas Gibieža has broken the longest no-hands motorcycle wheelie record, holding the position while driving for 580 m 81 cm (1,902 ft 32 in).
The record attempt took place in Vilnius, Lithuania, on 3 September 2022, as part of Red Bull's Showrun - an exhilarating event where spectators can witness unbelievable stunts involving cars and motorcycles.
This took place on a five lane road in the popular centre of Vilnius, which had been closed the evening before. A massive crowd turned out to cheer Arūnas on. The flat stretch of land was 850 m (2,788.71 ft) long in total, with the road level being pre-approved prior to the record attempt. The main challenge for Arūnas was maintaining the speed of 43 mph (70 km/h) throughout the whole attempt, which caused the brake to overheat.
Overcoming all obstacles, Arūnas was successful on his first attempt! The record-breaking 580 m 81 cm (1,902 ft 32 in) travelled was the longest of his three attempts. This broke the previous record of 567 m (1860.24 ft) achieved by Rohitesh Upadhyay (India) in Mehsana, Gujarat, India on 28 October 2019.
