Watch Street Luge Rider Attempt To Break World Record

Chris the street luge enthusiast attempted to break the world record at L’Ultime Descente. The plan was to beat 100 mph. Street luge or land luge was originally born out of skateboarding in California, as skaters realized they could reach faster speeds lying down on the board. Street lugers ride the board in a supine position and as is evident from the video, riders reach hair-raising speeds.
