Ivalo, Finland -- The European Watercross Champion, Antti Holmberg, rode a total distance of 111.9 miles on a water-prepped Ski-Doo to break the Guinness World Records' record. He rode from Ivalo, Finland to Inari and back on connecting lakes and rivers.

The total distance of 111.9 miles (180km) took him around three hours with an average speed of 37.03 mph (60km), which is the new world record for the farthest distance on a snowmobile on water, according to the World Record Academy www.worldrecordacademy.com/.

The Guinness World Records' record for the farthest distance on a snowmobile on water is 69.28 km (43.3 miles) and was achieved by Kyle Nelson (CAN) on Cowan Lake, Canada.

Holmberg secured his world record after driving a distance of 180km from the small Finnish town of Ivalo to Inari and back via connecting rivers and lakes.

He had a 15-gallon fuel tank, a 5-gallon backup and had to get about a 1.5-gallon fill-up from a watercraft while he was riding.

Guinness World Records also recognized the world record for the largest parade of snowmobiles, which consisted of 820 snowmobiles which completed a 46.6 km (29 mile) course at Roseau, MN, USA.
