About

Following an astonishing three year period in which The Hour Record was broken seven times by four different riders, the Chris Boardman - Graeme Obree rivalry reached its zenith. Boardman shattered the record using the latest innovative ‘superman’ riding position created by Obree and riding a Lotus carbon-fibre superbike, setting a mark of over 56 kilometres that stands to this day as the ultimate hour.

The UCI was scandalised and banned both the new position and the new record, vowing that never again would technology dominate the record to such an extent. New rules were created, and all future attempts would be limited to the type of equipment used by Merckx in 1972. Not to be outdone, Boardman returned to break the ‘Athlete’s Hour’ in 2000, in one of the most astonishing rides of the modern era.
