Come and see local World Champion Tony Mills attempt to break the current Townsville Cycle Club Hour Record on Saturday, August 22.
The current record holder is Jake Salmon on 122 laps (40.387kph), who recently started the globally popular challenge locally (a bit of background: The hour record is the record for the longest distance cycled in one hour on a bicycle from a stationary start. Cyclists attempt this record alone on the track without other competitors present. It’s considered one of the most prestigious records in all of cycling).
ORDER OF EVENTS:
• Tyler Tomkinson attempting to set a new 15 min record in the under 13 category.
• Ethan Viviers attempting to set a new 30 min record in the under 15 category.
• World record holder Tony Mills attempting to break the current hour record set by Jake Salmon.
Starting at 6.30pm at the Townsville Velodrome, there will be a barbecue and licensed bar, so bring along family and friends and come down and support these riders in their attempts — it’s going to be a great atmosphere.
