    Guy Martin had been training for this feat for months, which at one point landed him in the hospital. He fractured his ribs and spine last August but recovered, setting for stage for him to break the “Wall of Death” World Record on Monday night.

    Accelerating around a wall nearly seven feet high on a motorcycle, Martin reached a top speed of 78 mph and experienced a g-force of 5.2 (to put that in perspective: astronauts usually experience about 3gs during rocket launches), before eventually slowing down.

    Nobody died. Shouldn't it be called "wall of riding around in a circle"?

    I like it when they're two or three of them in a caged ball riding side ways and upside down. They had that at the last NYC motorcycle show I went to. Nobody got killed there either.

    Guy Martin is a 100% legit road racer. Has raced numerous times at the infamous Isle of Man TT. The most frightening and dangerous race on earth.

    Takes balls of solid steel to race the TT. It's not held on a race track, but on public roads. Extreme danger. Anyway, I get it that most would have little to no interest.

    That's a hell of a lot more dangerous than the motorcycle deal.
