Was it ever in doubt? Filippo Ganna’s Hour Record attempt was always likely to be something special, and he duly delivered with a stunning 56.792 km to eclipse both Dan Bigham’s previous benchmark and the so-called “best human effort” of 56.3 km set by Chris Boardman in 1996.

Much has been made of Ganna’s 3D-printed Pinarello Bolide F HR, and rightly so. The new Pinarello has not only set two new Hour Records in just two public outings, but it also gives a glimpse into the future of frame manufacturing and aero tech.

We got up close with both Ganna’s race and spare bikes just minutes after his stunning ride to bring you this new Pinarello in all its glory.
