Dutch cyclist Sebastiaan Bowier broke the world speed record for a bike as he rode at 133.78 kph (83.13mph) in Nevada, United States on Saturday (September 14).

Bowier, 26, was riding a high-tech recumbent bike in the World Human Powered Speed Challenge at Battle Mountain.

The speed was achieved on a 200-metre stretch of road, with a run-up of eight kilometres at Battle Mountain in the Nevada desert.

The 133.78 kph broke the previous record, set by Canadian Sam Whittingham at the same location in 2009, by 0.6kph (0.37mph)

The bike was designed by the Delft University of Technology and the VU University Amsterdam.
