Going for a Guinness World Record?

For some reason I was browsing the Guinness World Record site the other week and came across a record which I think I brake on nearly ever cycle ride.

The current world record for track standing is held by Jim Dechamp, USA and his track stand was 21.34 seconds long. We don’t know the exact circumstances around the world record, so it’s hard to say if I could do it for longer in the same situation and under the same rules. I know I can track stand on either fixed or freewheel hub for longer than that, and I’m sure that there are thousands of others in the world that can do it for longer.
