Last night, Dutch racer Dion Beukeboom attempted to break the Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) Hour Record, gunning for Sir Bradley Wiggins’s iconic feat from three years ago.

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.

Beukeboom claims 4th longest distance

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). It also used Tellyo to create and share short clips of key moments to social media throughout Beukeboom’s attempt.
