Triumph rideout sets record

1 of 3

Triumph riders set a new world record during a mass ride-out recently.

The parade broke the record for the biggest Triumph ride-out as 362 machines took part in the two-mile ride in Stoke.

The British built machines made their way from the Britannia football stadium, home of Stoke FC, on a two-mile run along the Stanley Matthews Way in Staffordshire.

The rideout was co-ordinated and organised by Bob Sheldon, of Staffordshire Triumph, and Kev Wilcox, organiser of the Staffordshire Bike Show. They were both thrilled with the turnout and Sheldon said:  “It was overwhelming to see all of those people turn out to support us and be a part of our World Record attempt”.

Guinness adjudicators examined footage and information of the event and deemed it suitable to be authorised as an official world record.
