My World Record Attempt 2024
My name is Marius Prünte, I was born in 1990 and live in Hamm in North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany. In 2023 I will try to break the world record as the fastest human on a bicycle.
Since my childhood I have been "burning" for cycling and was able to win important titles at an early age, that's why I became a professional.
In 2007 and 2008 I rode in the junior national league selection of the state of NRW and in 2008 in the German national team.
From 2009 to 2011 I started for the respective Bundesliga teams U23 for NRW and in 2012 for the team Bike Aid. In total I can show twelve victories and more than 150 placements among the top 15.
In 2016 I became German Firefighter Champion in the time trial and in 2018 double gold medal winner at the World Firefighter Games in South Korea. During a period of injury I set myself a sporting goal: "I want to break the world speed record for cyclists! On this website I will tell you exactly how this will work.
I have set August 15, 2024 as the date for the record attempt - I want to beat the existing world record of 296 km/h on a salt lake in Utah (USA) in the slipstream behind a dragster and ride a bicycle at about 300 km/h.
166.2 km/h on the bike: New German record!
On October 14, 2021, I broke the German record, which had stood since 1950, at the Lausitzring. With a GPS-documented speed of 166.2 km/h, I beat the previous record and had it officially confirmed by the Record Institute for Germany. I'm very happy about this, it's an incredible incentive for me! The next mark of 200 km/h is already planned, so stay tuned!
