Rollerblading Into The Record Books

I just read an article about a German daredevil named Dirk Auer who broke a world record by using in-line roller skates to race down a 1/2 mile roller coaster in just under a minute. Auer set this new world record at Trip Drill theme park in Stuttgart, Germany. His record-setting stunt included a steep 98-foot drop and speeds of up to 56 mp. This is not something that I will be putting on my "bucket list" that's for sure. For more information and a video to see Auer in action, please click on the link below:
