Indurain: Bradley Wiggins is a legend
June 08, 2015 (03:15) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
As Bradley Wiggins roared over the line to set the new UCI Hour Record of 54.526 kilometres Miguel Indurain " a former holder of the Hour and described by Wiggins as one his childhood heroes " watched on. In his days as a professional, Indurain was a man of few words, a rider who did his talking on the bike rather than off it. When Wiggins picked off the marker record of Alex Dowsett, Indurain merely glanced up at the media, smiled and offered a generous thumbs up. It was all he really needed to do, the deafening noise of the partisan crowd providing enough evidence as to ascertain what Wiggins efforts truly meant. Hes set a really impressive record tonight, Indurain told Cyclingnews as Wiggins soaked up the applause during his celebratory laps. What stood out was how consistent he was on the track with his speed. I thought he would do between 54 and 55 kilometres but what we saw was the maximum Bradley could do in these conditions. Wiggins ride sees him join a select group of riders, including Merckx and Coppi, who have won the Tour de France and also beaten the Hour Record. Until Sunday Indurain was the last to enter the group. Wiggins in now in the club. Hes won a Tour and now the Hour Record but dont forget he has won a lot of other races and he has the huge success from the Olympics. Hes a champion. Everyone has their ideas of what a legend is but Bradley is one of them. The new record may entice others to throw their hat into the ring, a factor that Wiggins said that he would welcome. Indurain, who broke the record once but also had a failed attempt in Colombia in 1995, believes that riders such as Tony Martin, Fabian Cancellara and former holder Alex Dowsett could be tempted to take on the challenge. Wiggins took half a season to do this. Youre talking about great champions with Martin, Cancellara and, of course, Dowsett. Wiggins has set a new record but if the others prepare, then they have a chance. This new record raises the bar really high and I dont think theres too much room for the rest. Will Wiggins go again? I dont know, youll have to ask him.ADVERTISEMENT You can read more at Cyclingnews.com More...
Wiggins raises UCI Hour Record bar to 54.526 kilometres
June 08, 2015 (00:15) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
When Bradley Wiggins wheeled to a standstill at the London Olympic velodrome after setting a new UCI Hour Record distance of 54.526 kilometres, he barely had a millisecond to ponder what he had achieved. Laps of honour, television cameras thrust at him and a hastily presented jersey to celebrate the distance all had to be presented before an in-house audience and those watching at home. Finally, when he was brought before the waiting press on the ground floor of the velodrome and away from the sweltering conditions of the track, Wiggins spoke of satisfaction, pride and relief. Satisfaction over the distance he had covered in an hour " although he admitted that had the air pressure been lower he could have added another 750 meters. Pride at joining an elite club of Tour de France winners who broke the record that includes Miguel Indurain and Eddy Merckx, and relief in finally completing the goal he set out to accomplish upon departing Team Sky in April.ADVERTISEMENT Its a huge relief more than anything. I was confident that I could break the record but until you actually go through the process and do it theres always that element, not doubt, but until its done he said at the start of his press conference. In truth, Wiggins achieved no more and no less what was expected of him, which in itself is a rather telling footnote to the recent indulgence of Hour Records. With Dowsett, Dennis, Bobridge and the rest the pre-match conjecture had been whether the record could be broken. With Wiggins it was a matter of by how much he could move the bar. In conditions that were far from favourable he set about dismantling Dowsetts record lap by lap. He was under record pace from the outset and had the air pressure been lower " it was at the highest it had been in recent weeks " he could have gone above 55 kilometres.

Olympic champion and Tour de France winner Bradley Wiggins added another prestigious honor to his collection on Sunday, breaking the UCI Hour Record by covering 54.526 kilometers (33.88 miles) at the velodrome in London's Olympic Park. ''That's the closest I will come to knowing what it's like to have a baby,'' Wiggins said, referring to the pain in his legs after smashing the record of 52.937 kilometers set just last month by fellow Englishman Alex Dowsett. Wiggins became the sixth cyclist to win the Tour de France - cycling's greatest race - and break the hour record, after Lucien Petit-Breton, Fausto Coppi, Jacques Anquetil, Eddy Merckx and Miguel Indurain.

By Douglas Beattie LONDON (Reuters) - Briton Bradley Wiggins added the UCI world hour record to his extensive cycling career honors tally on Sunday when he covered 54.526km in the London Olympic velodrome to smash the mark set by fellow Briton Alex Dowsett last month. Wiggins -- who undertook six weeks of intensive training ahead of the blue riband event for the furthest distance traveled in one hour -- rode into history in front of six thousand noisy fans, destroying the 52.937 set by Dowsett in Manchester. Wiggins is the fifth person since September to break the record -- held in the past by Eddy Merckx and Chris Boardman -- after the UCI changed the rules to allow riders to use whatever equipment is ruled legal for track timed events.

Obree 'certain' Wiggins will break UCI Hour Record
June 07, 2015 (00:30) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
In an interview published today by The Guardian, former UCI Hour Record holder Graeme Obree said he is certain Bradley Wiggins will set a new markon Sunday in London, but he hopes the British Olympic champion doesnt put it out of reach for other riders. Theres been a lot of hype from his camp, Obree told The Guardian. There is a huge weight of expectation, but 55km is a tall order for any human being. Weve seen Jack Bobridge and other guys fail and thats an insight into just how hard it is. Id be surprised if he didnt break Alex Dowsetts record, Obree said. But you have to bear in mind that Dowsett didnt reach his full potential.ADVERTISEMENT Obree told The Guardian that if Wiggins goes above 55km he believes it would put the record out of touch for the current peloton and discourage other riders from making their own attempts. If he does less than 55km I dont think the chapter is closed, Obree said. I want him to be good but not great so that the story keeps on rolling. The risk for Brad is not doing enough to stave off Dowsett coming back, he said. In that case you could have a repeat of the Obree and Boardman thing. And there are two other riders, Fabian Cancellara and Tony Martin, who could try it. If he does over 55, that could put it on the shelf for another generation.

Wiggins will break Hour Record with 54 or 54.5km ride, says Voigt
June 07, 2015 (00:30) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
Former UCI Hour Record holder Jens Voigt said this week that he expects Bradley Wiggins to break the record on Sunday with a mark of 54 or 54.5km.During an interview with Sky Sports, Voigt said Wiggins goal of 55km will be hard to achieve. I know he wants to aim at 55km, but 55km but is very fast and we just dont have the 'Superman' position anymore like Chris Boardman had, or smaller front wheels, which give you better aerodynamics, like the boys had in the past, Voigt told Sky Sports. We are still using fairly fast bikes, but there are limits to it, he said. OK, he has got the whole science project from Team Sky behind him, but also Bradley is not getting younger.ADVERTISEMENT Although hes now retired, Voigt can be credited with starting the ball rolling in regard to the current UCI Hour Record attempts. The German, who ended his career after the 2014 season, was the first rider to break the record after the UCI changed the rules last year. Voigt set a new a mark of 51.110km on the Velodrome Suisse in Grenchen, Switzerland on September 18, and the record has changed hands three times since then, with Alex Dowsett (Movistar) holding the current mark of 52.937 that he set last month on the Manchester Velodrome. In the Sky Sports interview, Voigt suggested there are only three currently active riders who could beat the record if Wiggins breaks it on Sunday. You can read more at Cyclingnews.com More...
Bradley Wiggins liberated by Hour Record challenge
June 06, 2015 (19:45) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
With his Hour Record attempt fast approaching, Bradley Wiggins has been relishing the unique nature of the challenge over the last seven weeks. The current world time trial champion will take on Alex Dowsetts benchmark of 52.937km on Sunday at the Lee Valley VeloPark in London and is widely tipped to surpass it. Wiggins has always had a fierce individualistic streak and now has the chance to indulge it after years of being a cog in the machines of Team Sky and the British Olympic set-up. Youre a one-man band, he told reporters at the velodrome on Tuesday. From the start of this it was my project " I had to take control and lead it, and have my own input and ideas on what I thought I needed to do for this record. So in that sense its been a lot easier than just being dictated to. Its quite liberating.ADVERTISEMENT Ive kind of been the head of it for the last seven weeks, dictating to everyone, were going to do this, were going to do that. So you are your own boss really. Its like being in charge of the company and telling everyone what to do. Its a lot easier " a hell of a lot easier. Wigginss power is not completely unchecked, though. In his corner is British Cycling track coach Heiko Salzwedel, with whom he has struck up an effective working relationship. Its quite difficult for anyone coming in and coaching me for this, said the 35-year-old. Ive known Heiko for a long time. Hes old school and hell just tell me how it is. So theres a nice balance there, which has really helped from a coaching point of view. You can read more at Cyclingnews.com More...
Gallery: Miguel Indurain's 1994 UCI Hour Record Pinarello Espada
June 06, 2015 (19:45) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
Miguel Indurain will be among those in attendance as Bradley Wiggins attempts to establish a new UCIHour Record in London on Sunday, and the Pinarello Espada from the Spaniards own successful 1994 attempt has already made it to the United Kingdom ahead of the event. In 1994, Indurain became the first man to take the Hour Record above 53 kilometres under the older regulations when he clocked 53.040 kilometres and Wiggins will aim to become the first man to do the same in the current era. He lines up on Sunday looking to break the current record of 52.937 kilometres established by Alex Dowsett last month and set a new benchmark for the Hour Record, which has enjoyed a resurgence since the UCI relaxed some of the restrictions on bike design it had imposed in 2000. Indurains 1994 attempt took place in Bordeauxs Lac Velodrome on September 2, just five weeks after he had won his fourth successive Tour de France, and " like Wiggins " there was speculation beforehand that he could elevate the Hour Record to beyond the 55-kilometre mark.ADVERTISEMENT Indurain was chasing the 52.713 kilometres set by Graeme Obree earlier that year, and while Obree had made his name by breaking the Hour Record on a self-designed bike with a radical, crouched position, the Spaniards Espada machine was a rather more grandiose project. Designed with input from Formula 1 aerodynamics experts Ing. Giacchi, the carbon monocoque Espada bike was a revolutionary machine even by the standards of an era that had been kick-started by Chris Boardmans Lotus, which he had ridden to individual pursuit gold at the Barcelona 1992 Olympics. Indurains Hour Record Espada weighed in at 7.5 kilogrammes. We realized that we couldn't make a bicycle with this kind of shape in metal so we decided to use carbon fibre, Fausto Pinarello explained in 2009. The first version was made for track, for the world hour record and then we modified it for the derailleurs and internal cable guides. Of course, this bike was made to measure for Indurain, so the carbon fibre molds still exist. The cost of each frame mold was about $5,000, not counting manufacturing costs.

Bradley Wiggins' Pinarello Bolide HR
June 06, 2015 (19:45) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
Bradley Wiggins will attempt the UCI Hour Record this Sunday at the Lee Valley VeloPark aboard a PinarelloPinarello Bolide HR. The bike was co-engineered by Jaguar with the Italian bicycle company with Wiggins calling it "the most aerodynamic track bike I've ever ridden". Wiggins' Bolide HR is based on Pinarello's road model with the distinctive difference ofone-piece titanium handlebar and frameset for aerodynamics. "The UCI Hour Record is the toughest challenge of human performance in cycling, where every fraction of a second matters," Wiggins said."I've worked with Jaguar's performance engineers since 2010, and their world class knowledge and experience in aerodynamics, combined with Pinarello's expert frame building, gives me confidence that I can set a new standard on Sunday.ADVERTISEMENT Jaguar's engineers took the Land Rover to create a claimed overall aerodynamic performance increase of 7.5%. The engineers also used the same design methods of the Jaguar XE, the company's most aerodynamic car, with all the components of the bike examined for possible improvements. The bike features a one-piece handlebar system created with Laser Sintering Technology with Wiggins' arm position optimized to reduce drag.The designers also narrowed the fork, bringing it closer to the front wheel in order to improve the air flow on the down tube and bottom bracket area along with the re-shaping of the chain ring and hubs for further aerodynamic benefits. "Jaguar has a talented team of engineers with a great depth of aerodynamic knowledge, so we're very proud to be able to work on this collaboration with Pinarello," said Principal CFD Aerodynamicist at Jaguar Land Rover John Pitman. "Applying this level of engineering capability and analysis to the development of bikes is still very new in cycling, and showcases the industry-leading expertise and facilities we have at Jaguar Land Rover."

Wiggins fails to break Dowsett's British 10-mile record
May 17, 2015 (19:00) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
In preparation for his Hour Record attempt on June 7, Bradley Wiggins set out to break compatriot Alex Dowsett's British 10-mile record on Saturday but failed to succeed. The current time trial world champion won the event in 15:58 minutes but that time was 38 seconds shy of Dowsett's record on the course held on the A63 between North Ferriby and North Cave. Wiggins ended his career with Team Sky following the Paris-Roubaix in April and announced that he would attempt to break the Hour Record on June 7 at London's 2012 Olympic velodrome,Lee Valley VeloPark.ADVERTISEMENT Dowsett, who races on the road for Movistar, recently set a new Hour Record on 52.937km on May 4 at the Manchester Velodrome. Although Wiggins complimented Dowsetts performance as fantastic, he also told The Times that he could "break that record tomorrow." Wiggins said that he hopes to set a new Hour Record that will stand for the next 20 years and suggested that 55 kilometres was a realistic target. Dowsett is currently racing at the Bayern Rundfahrt where he won the stage 4 time trial on Saturday and moved into the overall race lead. You can read more at Cyclingnews.com More...
Wiggins: I never saw myself as a 'Sir'
May 11, 2015 (10:00) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
Sir Bradley Wiggins has confessed that he considered turning down the offer of a knighthood when the honour was offered to him in following his Tour de France and Olympic time trial victories in 2012. Appearing on BBC Radio 4's Desert Island Discs, Wiggins admitted he had been persuaded to accept it by his grandmother and one of his musical heroes, Paul Weller. "It was quite strange. I never saw myself as a Sir. I said to my nan I wasn't going to accept it. My granddad had died in 2010, and she said, 'You're bloody stupid. You've got to accept that. George would turn in his grave if you turned that down,'" said Wiggins. He added that Weller, "actually gave me the nod. We were talking about it in a tailor's one day. He said, 'It's different for sport.' As soon as he said that, I thought I'd better take it. I kind of had his blessing." Wiggins spoke revealingly about his early life. Recalling his upbringing by his mother, Linda, in Kilburn in north-west London, Wiggins confessed that the emotional and financial support she had provided had been crucial to him, especially after his father, Gary, had left them. "She was quite a strong woman and I think she just lived for me from that moment on really," he said, adding that she fully supported his push to become a professional rider. "She knew that I was bunking off school to ride my bike, but she was fully supportive of me. Fortunately it all worked out for the best. She wanted me to pursue my dreams."ADVERTISEMENT He continued: "My mum put herself into 50,000 worth of debt to service my sporting career. I look after her now but she is not the sort of woman who wants a lot in return. She's just content and proud that I've held a marriage for 12 years and that I've got two kids " that I've got the fundamental things, things than mean more than sport, that I've become a good person." Asked about his father, the Briton said Gary Wiggins "did not fully see the responsibilities of having a child", and went on to discuss his father's involvement with drugs, which he confirmed included smuggling amphetamines in his infant son's nappies. "He did a bit of everything. His nickname was 'The Doc'. In those days it was amphetamines and speed. He was a user and used to sell. Given all that's been said about Lance Armstrong over the last few years, my mum's got some great stories about the people who, when I was a baby, came through our apartment door to buy stuff off my dad. These people are now beating the drum saying, 'I didn't do anything,' which is quite funny." You can read more at Cyclingnews.com More...
