My World Record Attempt 2021
My name is Marius Prünte, I was born in 1990 and live in Hamm in North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany. In 2021 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, 2021 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.
