Press Release: This weekend a Raleigh local, Derek Keller, will attempt to break the Guinness World Record for the Longest Track Stand at the 6BC Endurance Race and 5th Annual Fat Tire Festival in Chapel Hill this Saturday, October 16th.
The festival, hosted by Briar Chapel and Triangle Off-Road Cyclists (TORC), will also feature games, a rock climbing wall, local vendors and brand representatives, demo bikes, trail rides, kid activities, a 6-hour endurance race, and much more.
FYI, the current Guinness World Record for the Longest Track Stand is 21.34 (minutes? hours?*) by Jim DeChamp (USA) at Miller Motorsports Park in Tooele, Utah, USA, on 18 November 2008 for the MTV show ‘Nitro Circus’. Derek will be shooting for much longer using a trials bike.

(UPDATE: OK, this is a journalism fail…we’re trying to find some verification of his record, but if anyone has a link or knows otherwise, leave a comment.)
