Roland Schell – Faired Recumbent Trike (HPV) – August 25, 2018


On Saturday, 25th of August 2018, we arrived on the IVECO Test Track for Roland Schell's attempt at 24h Outdoor Track with the streamlined Milan SL (faired recumbent) - which he planned to use 2 of. Since 2 of the Crew already were ill with flu-like symptoms preparation took longer than anticipated. Traffic cones were placed in the banked curves and inspected. A large amount of broken off metal nuts and bolts were removed from the track for safety reasons and the electronic timekeeping was installed and tested. Weather conditions weren't great, it started to rain at around 2 p.m. [...]

Carlo Tannoury Santa Barbara to San Diego City Hall May 11, 2018


My name is Carlo Tannoury and I have complete a city to city record attempt Santa Barbara city hall to San Diego city hall just because I am passionate about cycling and I love California. Participating in the endurance events and championships lately, I encounter cyclists mapping the floor with Lance's best ever record with races that are far longer. Feeling frustrated with those unnatural performances, I set to go after old records were people had a free and clean spirit. This one in particular was completed in 1986 with a believable speed attainable by fit cyclist with any extra [...]

Steve Hodge and Olly Howarth Wales W-E


This has been a challenge from the outset. Originally I had planned to ride this attempt with my brother on a custom build tandem. Alas a problem sorting wheels from Holland with a supplier who let us down. Eventually lead to us having to ride an older lightweight touring tandem of mine. Whilst a good  bike, it was not designed for what we wanted to do. The next problem was my stoker and brother Iain due to circumstances beyond his control had to pull out at the eleventh hour. The support team and official had no other window than the [...]

Mikel Azparren Outdoor Track records


El reto empezó con 10' de retraso debido a unos problemas de tráfico que luego fueron resueltos. Haría unos 16 grados y poco viento a la salida. Durante los primeros 100km mantuve un ritmo vivo y me sentí con fuerzas . Pero al llegar a la tercera hora noté que mi estómago no digería bien la comida ni la bebida y me di cuenta que sería muy difícil poder hacer las 12 horas así. Con todo, intenté seguir vuelta tras vuelta. Hasta darme cuenta a las 7 horas pasadas que no podía seguir, mi cuerpo estaba vacío y no podía [...]
