Dannels Sets a New Trans USA Inline Skating World Record

By March 10, 2008

Follow me on:

Inline speed skater Danny Dannels, a Texas Flyers Inline Speedskating Team member, has successfully skated over 2600 miles to break the Guiness Book of World Records Trans USA Inline skating record. The old record was set by Rusty Montcrief who crossed the USA on inline skates in 69 days, 8 hours and 45 minutes from January 5th to March 15th in 2002. Danny's new record is 67 days, 10 hours and 45 minutes.

The journey began in Salana Beach California on January 1st, and it was completed at Crescent Beach in Florida on March 8th. Members of Team FAST, the Florida Associated Speed Team, were honored to skate the last 10 miles with him. Danny's wife, Hillary, was with him every step of the way - this was their honeymoon.
