Breaking World Records: Basti Rittig Shuts It Down In Austria

In an attempt to break the current world record for longest rail slide (259 feet) the Nitro crew gathered on the Dachstein Glacier in Austria for their second go-around. The crew had tried previously in May, but no one could quite tame the beast. This time, Marc Swoboda, Dominik Wagner, Ana Rumiha, Ziga Rokovec, Benny Urban, Basti Ritti gathered again, and failure wasn’t an option. Within four hours, Basti cleaned a 50-50 down the rail, setting a new record of 275.5 feet.
