    that distance record is mind boggling
    I’m intrigued by the mental aspect of tackling such a challenge along with how many injuries/saddle sores etc had to be managed
    do these guys just ride in a tailwind?
    Every single day for 12 hours over a year.. I can’t even imagine how that would effect your life

    Also curious how the record in 1939 was measured?

      One thing we know, the 1939 record was not achieved laying down! As far as I am concerned the Godwin’s record still still stands. Different machine, different record.

    With 1,700km completed Year-to-Date already, it seems that the annual distance record is already under attack…


    I can’t even begin to understand what sort of mental preparation and motivation would be needed to even attempt something like that…

      I also can’t understand how people can afford to do this. I guess if you have the cash, why not do something significant (not that I think this is actually significant tbh)
