(Anaheim, CA) Feb. 5, 2021 – One of America’s most popular and successful motorcycle road racers and Fresh n’ Lean ambassador, Josh Herrin has a new title to add to his resume –GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title holder. On December 4th Herrin secured the prestigious record title when he beat the clock by holding his elbow to the ground for 30 meters while riding his Yamaha R6 at 162.4 kilometers per hour. The attempt took place on the West Riverside Loop at Buttonwillow Raceway Park near Bakersfield, California.

Setting this record title has been important to Herrin, who is fueled by organic prepared meal company Fresh n’ Lean.

“For me, winning is more than just a race, it’s also about pushing yourself beyond what you thought was possible.  Achieving this GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title is next level and it would not have been possible without Fresh n’ Lean,” said Josh Herrin.

A MotoAmerica Superstock and Superbike Champion, Herrin and his team had two trial runs before the successful record-breaking effort on December 4.

“Our congratulations to Josh for taking on this challenge and finding a way to accomplish it. His perseverance is inspiring not only to us and a generation of riders,” said Thomas Asseo, Fresh n’ Lean Co-CEO.
