It was warm enough today - I did an hour on the boards today. (No records broken - I did 16.4 miles :D although I did stop for a drink a few times)

I think it may need a bit of work before he tries as the track surface is showing its age a bit.

Bump - has no one tried for the record recently?

Sir Bradley Wiggins' one-hour world record will be challenged by Belgium's Victor Campenaerts on 16 or 17 April.

Briton Wiggins set the mark at 54.526km in London on 7 June, 2015.

Campenaerts, 27, will make his attempt at the Bicentenario velodrome in Aguascalientes, Mexico, which has hosted numerous track record attempts because it is at an altitude of 1,800m.
