You have to wait a few more hours, just like Ellen van Dijk herself. But then it’s time. Today, May 23, 2022, Van Dijk will do her best to break the world hour record. You can follow it live from 5:00 pm and can be followed in various places, such as on the live feed of Trek which you can find below.
More than 48,405 km is the goal
We know that she can cycle hard, otherwise you won’t become world time trial champion. But breaking a world hour record is just a bit different. Everything has to run smoothly and the record she has to break is 48.405 km. The record is held by Joscelin Lowden, who set the record in September last year. Like Lowden, Van Dijk drives the Velodrom Suisse in Grenchen and Trek has given her the Speed Concept a beautiful design. For example, the right side is white (Finish Line white) and the left side has been given a Cote d’Azur blue color. The wheels are also included in the design. Will she beat the record time? If it’s anyone right now, it’s her. After she has cycled for an hour, we will know.
