  3. You'd think after all these years that they'd manage to knock some time off it...

    Surely an hour has and will always be 1/24th of a day? ;)

    Another attempt at the hour record this time by Campenaerts.
    In Mexico at altitude again. Wiggins was virtually at sea level in London. How big a difference would that make?

    The long jump world record made at the Mexico Olympics stood for many many years.

    Double edged sword.... Less air resistance but less oxygen. Back on my day they went for less air resistance and tried to compensate by training for altitude. With all the aero stuff it might be that oxygen at lower level wins.......

    The Huub wattbike team are planning a go in Mexico, they talked about the trade off and seemed to come down on the side of thin air over O2.

    It still isn't as fast as Boardman's ride of 56.375 Km.

    Disallowed at the time by the forward thinking UCI because his bike hadn't been designed in the 1920s or something.

    Slightly more than 1/24th you'll find.
