Can We Break The Hour Record? (On an E Bike!)

Published on December 26th 2021


The hour record is considered by many to be the ultimate test on two wheels. Many have attempted it, many, including our own Oliver Bridgewood have failed - sorry Ollie! But what happens if you scrap all the UCI rules and regulations and rock up to a velodrome with a derestricted e bike? Alex was up for the challenge! Can he break the hour record? (On an E Bike!) Unfortunately Alex forgot to upload his ride to Komoot so you won’t be able to see his data from the ride! ____________________ Subscribe to GCN+ for cycling as you have never seen it before!
