To attack the existing Hour Record of 90.598km, set by Sam Whittingham in the Varna Tempest in 2009, we joint to the Team Eivie. Read here how we built Eiviestretto, how I learnd to ride backwards, Damjans impressions and more.
Why is Eiviestretto so fast and how much better is it than a ordinary racebike? We tested both bikes in the RUAG Windtunnel Emmen. TV-Report and facts here.
On 2nd of August 2011 we set a new World Record of 91.556km, beating the existing mark by nearly one kilometer. Here a full report of the Record-Weekend at Dekra.
After the recordrun in 2011 I knew that we can still go faster! We improved the bike and I concentrated more on training. What happend in 2012? Why didn’t we set a new mark?
