It was downhill all the way for ski instructor Hermann Koch when he attempted to set a world record for the Fastest 1 km backwards on a ski-bob in Obertauern, Austria last year.
Driving a snowbike in reverse, the Austrian sped into the record books in an incredible 2 minutes 35.99 seconds.
A ski-bob is a vehicle designed for gliding downhill on snow, comprised of a bicycle-type frame and handlebars which are attached to skis instead of wheels and a set of foot skis instead of pedals. The snowbike takes a certain amount of skill and practice to master.
This was not the first time Koch achieved a Guinness World Records title on the slopes, having previously racked up the Greatest vertical distance ski-bobed in 12 hours by an individual with a total of 32,736 metres (107,401ft 4 in) in 2007. He holds the record with his friend Harald Brenter because they took on the the challenge at the same time.
In 2013 the snow-loving pair achieved a record for the Greatest vertical distance ski-bobbed in 1 hour by an individual with an incredible 3,086 metres (10,124 ft 7.82 in).
