Hundreds of ebike riders came out to help break the GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS™ title for most ebikes on a ride
There should then be if not already the fastest ebicycle ever, furthest ebicycle ride ever.... Im not going to google those.
but
Guiness World Records is a novelty with some/most of their "records"
Most toilet seats broken by the head in one minute
Most rotations hanging from a power drill in one minute
Most watermelons chopped on the stomach in one minute

Ya man went there did that. :D

An easy way to be part of the record book if nothing else.

Was a good chance to see other styles of ebikes and meet the riders.

Made for a good afternoon.

How a skier managed to compete at Olympics despite not being very good
https://www.dailyherald.com/sports/2018 ... -very-good
Swaney competed at Pyeongchang for Hungary, where she said she has heritage through her maternal grandparents. When Swaney began competing in halfpipe events in 2013, she was representing Venezuela, then switched to Hungary in 2016.

Her spot in the Olympics is a result of the relative lack of depth in women's halfpipe and the fact that some countries that dominate in the sport, such as the U.S., can only send four competitors. Swaney did her part, at least according to the rules for eligibility set forth by the International Ski Federation (FIS), by doggedly appearing at World Cup events -- and not falling.


The minimum requirements for making it to the Winter Games included consistently finishing in the top 30 in World Cup events and accumulating enough FIS points. The former was not a major problem, as many World Cup events did not attract 30 women, and her play-it-safe approach -- to perhaps put it far too kindly -- ensured that she remained upright and came away with at least a few points.

Swaney has traveled the world to compete in World Cup halfpipe events, including in China, Italy, France, South Korea, Canada and New Zealand, as well as stateside in California, Colorado and Utah. Her best result was 13th out of a field of 15 competitors in China, when most of the world's top skiers were at a more prestigious event in the U.S.
