Italian breaks (own) underwater cycling record

According to Barcroft Media, a picture and news agency, 62-year old Vittorio Innocente broke his own world record yesterday.

At a depth of 65 metres he rode his customised bike along the ocean bed in Portofino’s maritime marine reserve for nine minutes and managed a non-EPO powered distance of 110 metres. The record has been recognised by the Guinness Book of World Records. Picture here.

Sadly, during the record breaking feat, two UCI commissaires drowned while attempting to measure Mr. Innocente’s top-tube.
