Roger LeBlanc has been able to break the world record of the UTV wheelie. Because of this, he has been able to secure a spot in the Guinness Book of World Records. According to him, it has not been an easy task. He had to put in a whole lot of effort in order to achieve this goal. He had to practice every day to bring about close to perfection, if not perfect, in his balance.
The record had been done using a Honda 700 Pioneer UTV. The UTV had four passengers. All of these passengers have already dauntlessly tried to perform the task. The four passengers were Paul Arsenault, Gilles Dupuis, Martin Phinney and Jeff Gallant. They were game to be part of this fearless stunt. Proudly, they were able to accomplish a world record.
This amazing team was able to perform the longest UTV Wheelie. The distance of this wheelie is 1140.3m on the grounds of Moncton International Airport in Moncton in the Atlantic Canada International Air Show. There had been an incredible number of people who anticipated and watched this show.
Their wheelie was definitely a really amazing stunt you would want to watch over and over. Roger used up all the determination and confidence inside him and was able to perform a stunt like no other, and secure a place in the Guinness book of World Records.

The Guinness World Records have investigated the matter, and has seen that the wheelie that was performed has broken the record of a prior attempt by Andy Bell. He had been holding on to this record for over six years. Andy had tried breaking it, unfortunately they could not. I guess anyone who plans performing a wheelie requires a certain adrenaline rush and some tough guts. After all, no distance can ever satisfy these men.
Congratulations, Mr. LeBlanc. May you keep the record for a very long time.
