Alex Dowsett wrote his name into the history books in Manchester, smashing the UCI Hour Record at the National Cycling Centre.
Dowsett obliterated Rohan Dennis’ previous mark of 52.491km, setting a new distance of 52.937km on this bike – the Canyon Speedmax WHR.
Dowsett billed the Hour Record as the ‘purest form of time trial…man and machine against man and machine’ in the build-up to the event.
And the Essex man, 26, had Canyon, Movistar and Endura to thank for the kit in which he broke the record.
