Watch live as Bradley Wiggins of Great Britain attempts to break countryman Alex Dowsett’s UCI Hour World Record. Dowsett’s record stands at 52.937km set on 2nd May 2015 in Manchester.
Asked on Sunday by the Telegraph about Dowsett’s record, Wiggins said that the speed he has shown in training suggested he should break the record comfortably. “Based on what I’ve been doing in the last three weeks I should be quite a way ahead of that [52.9km],” he said. “We’ve been training on 54km dead as a guide but it could go one kilometre further or 500m shorter, depending on conditions on the day.”
Can he do it? This could be the last of the Hour Record attempts we see for some time if he doesn’t.
