Upping the downhill speed anté, Eric Barone hits 227km/h

Looks like the downhill speed wars are in full effect! After the recent record set by Markus ‘Max’ Stöckl on a stock DHer on dirt, Eric Barone wasn’t going to sit out of the limelight. His new world record on snow of 227km/h is pretty damn impressive, regardless of balanced/aero bikes and wacky helmets. Especially when you watch the run out and how bucked he gets. We gotta say though, this is why skins suits are banned in DH, we don’t need dudes walking around like this….
