American 'dude' smashes Gary Rothwell's long-standing stoppie record

CHECK THIS OUT: the world's fastest stoppie - set by American rider Kane Friesen he kept the back wheel up for 270 metres at 137mph.

It's all impressive stuff, apart from the usual Americanisms.

But there's no getting away from the fact that Friesen has now smashed the previous record set by Gary Rothwell in 2002 by the best part of 40mph.
