Good luck to Ian To, and indeed anybody else who plans a record attempt this year. My only plea is please, pretty please keep us armchair supporters updated with progress. We are on your side.

Apologies if this is just me being dull-witted, but what the significance of "Project 44"? IIRC, Ian To's schedule for last year's attempt was 44 hours but MB's ride was well inside that time.

Project 44 im guessing is just leftover from last year. They need project 43 now!

The twitter feed of Ian is active today while out training.

Fair play to him for having another go.

There was something on Twitter last summer (when he did his second attempt) suggesting that they should change to Project43. I can't remember much of the answer, other than they wanted to keep the name as it was.

Today he’s Knocked 15 minutes off course record for 90ml trip. Broke Strava segment KOM by minutes in the process. Impressive stuff but is it appropriate for a LEJOG? time will tell.
