It wasn’t too long ago that we brought you the news that the Isle of Man TT circuit had a new record etched in its history books, but not one for speed necessarily…
Yes that’s right, I’m talking about Dougie ‘The Wheelie King’ Lampkin and the ridiculous feat of endurance that was lapping the entire TT circuit on the back wheel of his trials bike.
Now when you’re a twelve-time World Champion like Dougie, you get to a point where you start looking for a new kind of challenge. I’m not sure where the idea came from, but you’ve got to admit he’d definitely set himself a challenge and a half when it comes to pulling a wheelie around all 59.5km (37 miles) of the iconic Isle of Man TT course without putting the front wheel down once.
Now a couple of months on from the monumental, and most importantly successful effort, we have been treated to a full documentary on the effort thanks to the team at RedBull.
Check it out in it’s full 45minutes of glory HERE.
