rapha_n_america “It’s not possible to compare the hour with a time trial on the road. Here it’s not possible to ease up, to change gears or the rhythm. The hour record demands a total effort, permanent and intense, one that’s not possible to compare to any other. I will never try it again.” That was Eddy Merckx on the hour record, after he broke it. Soon, it’s Brad Wiggins’ turn. In support of Wiggins’ attempt at the hour record on Sunday, we’re inviting you to ride your own hour in the week preceding Wiggins’ attempt. Share your effort with #myhour 23h
