Josh Sheehan Completes 100 KM/H Lake Skim on a Dirtbike

February 15, 2018

FMX legend Josh Sheehan made some waves this week ahead of the Nitro Circus Next Level Tour of Australia, which kicks off in a few weeks. During a media event to promote the tour, The Unicorn hydroplaned a dirtbike through Belmont Park Lake in Perth. To keep the 200-pound bike above water, he had to get it up to a speed of over 100 kilometers per hour, or about 63 mph. After a couple practice runs he nailed it, successfully clearing about 100 feet of open water — a feat not many moto riders have accomplished. Check out the photos and video from Sheeny’s POV, and hit this link for tickets to the Next Level Tour:
