Matthias is riding on a 200 m track and Jens rode on a 250 m track. I seem to remember around when Jens rode the record Mattias said he was going to ride his attempt on a 330 m outdoor track. They are saying he changed to this track as it's IAM cycling training track

He's only 24, so if you wanna use the old 220 methods he was still 10+ under his maximum. Who really knows what his mac actually is.

 

At 41 did brw ride at average 170, and run at 182 hitting 189 at the end of run (I won't disclose how slow I was going to achieve those), but 180 could be 20+ below his max. I'd say well doable for a young fit guy.

Who is next? Has anyone else committed to an attempt or are they just saying they are keen at some stage to give it a go?

Cut and paste from Cycling News

 

"Wiggins may attempt hour record next summer

 

Bradley Wiggins’ hour record attempt could happen in July or August of next year, according to the Diario de Mallorca newspaper. The paper also reported that Wiggins would make his hour record attempt at the El Palma Arena in Mallorca. Wiggins has spent the past few weeks in Mallorca and met with the velodrome’s technical director Joan Llaneras at the Tolo restaurant in Port de Pollença a week ago.

 

The meeting between the two happened during a celebration hosted by the ex-footballer Tomeu Llompart. “Wiggins wants to break the record of the time in Mallorca in Palma Arena and fill the public velodrome. And he is convinced that this will mobilize thousands of English fans to travel on holiday to the island to see his attempt," Llompart told the newspaper. “He considers Mallorca as his home and therefore wants to face the record on the island."

 

With Wiggins switching his focus from road to track for next season, it frees up a big window in the middle of the season when he can make his attempt. The heat of the summer can help to replicate some of the effects of altitude by reducing drag and help Wiggins to break the record."

 

The El Palma Arena velodrome is owned by the Mallorcan government and was the subject of an enquiry after it was linked with the embezzlement of public funds, forgery and bribery.

I think Jack could've broken the record if he attempted a little later, he probably was still carrying some fatigue from TDU. Also he probably could've have paced his attempt better too.

Agree with the pacing comment but I'm sure Dennis would be carrying a bit of fatigue also, winning the TDU and all!

Van Houweling sets pan-American hour record in Mexico

 

American Molly Shaffer Van Houweling took to the track in Aguascalientes, Mexico, just hours after Thomas Dekker’s unsuccessful run at the men’s hour record, and set a new best mark for U.S. and pan-American women, riding 45.637km on Wednesday.

When I learned that Thomas Dekker would be making a UCI hour record attempt in Aguascalientes, I figured it might be a chance for me to set a world masters record for 40-44 women. My December U.S. elite record (44.173km) was well beyond the world masters mark (40.711km), but it wasn’t official because it was officiated by USA Cycling, not the UCI.

I was also curious to see how close I could come to Leontien van Moorsel’s elite world record (46.065km), which of course might soon be extended by Sarah Storey). I’m not actually eligible to set the UCI elite mark now because I’m not enrolled in the biological passport program.

 

Could well have a crack at the open Elite record.

I was happy to play a small part in that, providing Molly and husband Robert with some assistance on technical matters in the lead up to her attempt. They are both Professors at Berkeley (Molly is a Law Professor).

 

It was a bit opportunistic as they piggy backed on the Dekker attempt to save costs of officals etc and so her acclimatisation was a bit compromised.

 

But even if she had beaten the elite record (which we thought would be a stretch but not that far off) it would not have been ratified as the elite record because the UCI now demand elite records only be ratified for those riders in the biopassport program.

 

Doping control is still required for UCI age group records.

 

So apart from a new Pan American and US elite record, this is also the new UCI women's masters 40-44 age category record (nearly 5km more than the previous record).

If she'd beaten the elite record it would have looked funny to see the 40-44 Age Group record faster than the Elite. It's like an AGer winning Kona.
