New 24-hour world record

Robic breaks 24 hour record
On September 19th Slovenian ultracyclist Jure Robic, winner of this year’s RAAM (Race Across America), has broken Andreas Clavedertcher’s (Liechtenstein) 24-hour record of 813 km. Yes, you read that right. Robic’s new mark is an incredible 834.77 km (518.5 miles) which is an average of 34.78 km/h (21.6 mph). Not surprisingly Robic rode on a flat 17.44 km circuit in Moravske Toplice (Slovenia).

The current UK RRA record is P J Woodburn’s 494.25 miles set in 1982 and the current competition record (so it doesn’t count as a world record) is an incredible 525.07 miles set by Andy Wilkinson in 1997.

For more info see the Ultracycling website and the RRA for the current British road records.

The CTT also has the current competition records (check out the 100 miles tandem record, wow!) .
