Alex Dowsett out to regain hour record from Sir Bradley Wiggins
Alex Dowsett will attempt to regain the UCI hour record from fellow British cyclist Sir Bradley Wiggins.
Wiggins' ride of 54.526km in June 2015 at the Lee Valley VeloPark overhauled previous record holder Dowsett's ride of 52.937km a month prior.
Commonwealth time-trial champion Dowsett, 26, hopes to regain the record in early 2017 in Manchester.
Dowsett said in June that his own attempt was a "very conservative race and I could have gone faster".
Wiggins became only the sixth rider to win the Tour de France and claim the hour record when he set a new mark in London.
