How far can you ride in 60 minutes? No distractions, no coffee breaks – just yourself, the bike and the seconds ticking away!

The current record is 51.852km, held by Matthias Brandle. Last week Aussie Jack Bobridge narrowly missed the record, setting a new Australian record of 51.3 at Melbourne’s DISC Velodrome.
