A few weeks ago, I noted the Guinness World Record attempt by George Hood in spin cycling, in support of the Gunnar Hotchkin Memorial Fund.
In the spirit of follow-up–and George Hood is nothing if not the consummate example of persistent follow-up, here’s a news release that Inside Edge PR produced in the aftermath of Hood’s successful ride:
Along with other volunteers’ efforts, Inside Edge PR helped secure coverage for George’s feat on WGN Radio (host Greg Jarrett), WBBM Radio (Mike Krauser), NBC 5, and a variety of local newspaper outlets.
Congratulations to George, whose record-setting rides (as well as a few that fell short) I’ve publicized for nearly four years. And kudos to the volunteer crew that played an integral role in his extraordinary effort.
Below is a video clip, shot by Devyn Bokos of Urban Tri Gear in Burr Ridge, that shows George cruising past the prior record of 200 hours:
