British daredevil performs a handstand on a motorbike at 76mph in record attempt

A British daredevil has performed a handstand on a motorbike while travelling at more than 76mph.

Attempting to set a world record for the fastest headstand on a motorcycle, Marco George, 30, from Fleet, clocked a speed of 76.1764mph at the Straightliners World's Fastest Wheelie Competition in North Yorkshire on Saturday.

It is expected to by ratified by Guinness World Records, with the previous record thought to be 30mph - a mark Mr George had been hoping to double.

He told PA: "I don't know what happened, I just clicked into the next gear of what I normally do and managed to pull a 76.

I feel amazing and relieved." The day was not without issue for Mr George, who was forced to buy a new helmet on the morning of the record attempt because the one he had been using did not meet required safety standards.
