On Thursday evening, September 18th, the professional cyclist Jens Voigt from Trek Factory Racing will try to improve the hour record at the Velodrome Suisse in Grenchen, Switzerland as last big step of his career.
The first hour record with 35,325 km was set 1893 by the founder of the Tour de France, Henri Desgrange, since it was improved 34 times. The current record is at 49.700 km set in 2005 by Ondrej Sosenka.
The hour record is one of the most prestigious in cycling. Jens Voigt is already a legend of the sport and with this record will retire on top of the world. An honor worthy of such a remarkable career.
