British 10mile TT record

Post by Tim » 31 May 2014 20:15

Alex Dowsett rode a new British 10 TT record today. 17.20.

Average of 34.6mph!

Just how is that possible?

I'm gonna do my ten mile route to work on Monday and try and fail to average 20mph.

Easy

Genetics


Then train hard...And get a decent course on a decent day.

In conclusion

Blame your parents/grand parents/great grand parents.

That's a massive chunk off the exisiting record, wonder if one day we'll see a 16 minute 10?

Well there's a good few of us couldn't do it even then, Paul. I'd have to roll down a very big hill to reach 35mph!

So he did it just before tea. But what was his time?
