   Kunze finished almost 16 hours faster than the former Guinness world record holder, Australia's Richard Vollebregt (Perth to Sydney in 8 days, 11 hours and 12 minutes).

Guido Kunze was supported and equipped for his record attempt by Paul Lange & Co, the official Shimano distributor in Germany.

   Shimano’s state-of-the-art electronic road racing component group DURA-ACE Di2, DURA-ACE wheels and pedals and Shimano Custom-Fit road racing shoes were provided to him and proved to be decisive factors for the record ride.

 Besides acting as an ambassador for the project “Polio Now - for a world without polio”, a worldwide charity project of the Rotary Clubs and the Bill Gates Foundation, Guido Kunze ’s new world record is also seen by Shimano as an ambitious endurance and performance test.
