Frenchman Eric Barone established a new world-record bike speed on Saturday, March 28, according to VeloNews.
Riding on a track at the Vars ski resort in the Hautes-Alps between Gap, France, and the Italian border, Barone rode at a speed of 223.3 kph (138.7 mph) on a steep, snow-packed slope, according to VeloNews.
Barone was riding a special downhill mountain bike with a fairing to improve aerodynamics. He has set bike speed world records on previous occasions on both snow and gravel surfaces. He first set the world speed record in 2000.
