Awesome viewing as Dutch cyclist Beukeboom claims 4th longest distance for UCI Hour Record

Chasing the record at the Aguascalientes velodrome in Mexico, Beukeboom recorded 52.757 kilometres, ranking him 4th in distance covered in the illustrious event but still shy of Wiggins’s amazing mark of 54.526 kilometres which was set at London’s Olympic Velodrome in 2015.

Enabling global fans to witness this latest attempt at cycling’s most prestigious record, the UCI live streamed the event to Facebook and the UCI YouTube channel (tv.uci.ch). The UCI also used Tellyo to create and share short clips of key moments to social media throughout Beukeboom’s attempt.

It was compelling viewing and congratulations should go to Beukeboom – it was a superb effort and truly awesome to watch.”
