Sir Bradley Wiggins’ one-hour UCI world record has been broken by the Belgian Victor Campenaerts. The 27 -year-old Lotto Soudal rider encompassed 55.089 kilometres( 34.231 miles) in his record attempt at the Aguascalientes indoor velodrome in Mexico.
Wiggins had held the record since June 2015 when he completed a distance of 54.526 km( 33.881 miles) at London’s Lee Valley VeloPark.” I genuinely focused on this for a long time so I am super-happy that I took the record ,” Campenaerts said after completing 221 laps of the velodrome.
