Pro bike: Alex Dowsett’s Hour Record-breaking Canyon Speedmax WHR

Movistar man smashes UCI Hour Record mark in Manchester

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.
