Stunt cyclist climbs to top of tallest hotel in Europe in 19 minutes

It took him 19 minutes and 27 seconds today to climb to the top of the 614 foot-tall Grand Hotel Bali in the eastern Spanish resort city of Benidorm in Madrid.

Young Polish stunt cyclist Krystian Herba did not pedal but hopped up the hotel in 921 steps.

“I’m tired but very happy” Herba told the Associated Press.

Herba has been cycling for 17 years and got started by doing stairs in famous buildings in Poland before moving on to climbs around Europe.

In October, Herba hopped to the top of the 50-story Millennium Tower in Vienna, the tallest building in Austria.
