Austrian sets new mark in Aigle.
Matthias Brändle became the second rider this year to break the UCI’s new aerodynamic hour record. Riding on a modified Scott Plasma 5 with double disc wheels on the track in Aigle, Switzerland, the 24-year-old Austrian bested the best mark by more than 0,7 km over the hour to chalk himself into the sport’s records.
Thomas Dekker has announced plans to tackle the Hour Record next spring. Currently held by Mattias Brändle, who recently broke Voigt’s record with a ride of 51.850 kilometres.
Tony Martin has announced his intentions to target the Hour Record in 2015. Martin doesn’t specify when the attempt might take place, but says that it is likely to happen at some point next season. „It’s on my agenda,“ he said in an interview with German website Radsport-News. The Hour Record would provide Martin with a rare chance to get one over on Wiggins, but he says that he isn’t dwelling on the loss.
Former Tour de France winner Bradley Wiggins has confirmed that he will take on the Hour Record next year, telling BBC Sport that: “it will give me something to get out of bed for in the winter.”.
