ELVINGTON AIRFIELD, NORTH YORKSHIRE, ENGLAND (NBC NEWS) – Briton Neil Campbell set a new Guinness men’s world cycling speed record this Saturday.

Using a custom built bike fitted with a parachute and a Porsche Cayenne Pace Car, Campbell hit 174.3-miles-per-hour at Elvington Airfield in North Yorkshire, England.

He surpassed Fred Rompelberg’s record of a little more than 167 miles-per-hour set at The Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah in 1995.

Bonneville is where Campbell next has his sights set as he and his team aim to ride at a speed of 220 miles-per-hour next year.
