This week’s episode of the Nerd Alert podcast is certainly a special one. Dave Rome and Ronan McLaughlin chat with the newly crowned Hour World Record Holder, Dan Bigham.

Prior to besting Victor Campanaerts’ 2019 World Record, the British track cyclist was best known for his work in aerodynamic engineering. He’s worked with Mercedes F1, Canyon-SRAM, Team KGF/ HUUB-Wattbike, and Jumbo-Visma, and is currently a performance engineer with the Ineos Grenadiers. He also happens to be the brains behind the WattShop.

With such a resume in tech backed by a world-beating engine, it was well overdue that Dan joined us as a special guest on the podcast. Here we chat about the things he’s allowed to discuss related to his Hour Record, we touch on the things he’s not allowed to discuss, and plenty more.
