British National Track Championships

While we were expecting our partners Huub/Wattbike Test Team to retain last years title in the Mens Team Pursuit, there was a host of other medal winning performances during the four day event. While Huub/Wattbike did make the top step on the podium, there was aways the chance that John Archibald would better the 4-10.177 he set in the Individual Pursuit in Switzerland last month as he set a new British National Record as he posted 4-09.584 to set the second fastest time in history! Now holding the second and third best times in history, Archibald now has the 4-07.251 time of team mate Ashton Lambie in sights.

Not to be outdone, Matt Rotherham, another rider we’ve supported for a few years now, with partner Neil Fachie,  reduced the B/VI Tandem Mens Kilometre TT down to 1:01.559 to claim a yet to be ratified New World Best Time, followed by Gold in the Flying 200m TT. Matt also took Gold ahead of Jonny Wale and Dan Bigham in the Mens Kilo TT making a complete Walker Brothers 1-2-3!

Huub Wattbike Test Team

Over the course of 2017 and into 2018, the progress of four little known and relatively unexperienced riders based at Derby University into a World renowned force in Team Pursuing was documented by Filmaker James Pope. Its been an honour to be asked to develop and supply our Ethereal carbon discs to the squad during this time and be asked to continue that support into the new Huub Wattbike Test Team. Parental discretion is advised.

Vittoria Bussi Breaks the UCI Womens Hour Record

On 13th September 2018, Vittoria Bussi set a new world hour record in Aguascalientes, Mexico, riding 48.007 kilometres on Walker Brothers Ethereal Discs, beating the previous distance of 47.980 set by American Evelyn Stevens in February 2016 on the track in Colorado Springs. Astoundingly it was Bussi’s second attempt in 24 hours having completed 44 minutes before climbing off.

For the first quarter of the distance, Bussi, lapped the 250 metre track in 18.7 seconds leaving her just ahead of her schedule by the halfway point, As she completed the third quarter, this dipped slightly but as she approached 40 minutes, the point where she climbed off the previous day however from then on, Bussi stormed away for the final 20 mins so much so that she over 2 seconds up at 45 minutes and 4 seconds up at 50 minutes, which she held to the end to become the only woman to do so since the UCI changed its hour record rules in 2014.
