This print celebrates the British cyclists fascination with the hour record, their achievements and some genius engineering.
Athlete or Genius? Graeme Obree shot to fame in the early 90s after twice breaking the world hour record on a bike, Old Faithful, he'd built using parts from an old washing machine.
In 1996, Chris Boardman set the world hour record on the Lotus 110, covering 56.375km in one hour. Though this mark is labelled “best human effort” because Boardman used a disc wheel, aero bars, and the superman position, the bike remains a tribute to what's possible on two wheels.
On 7 June 2015, Sir Bradley Wiggins broke Alex Dowsett's record, by completing a distance of 54.526km at the Lee Valley VeloPark in London. He was riding his Pinarello Bolide HR which was co-created with Jaguar. They designed a one-piece handlebar system, and a narrowed the forks, to reduce drag by 7.5%.
