The Hour Record: famous, exacting, brutalizing. Each run at it implicates a dedicated team of specialists, scientists, athletes, and even dreamers. Watch Ganna and Pinarello fight for the crown here.
No matter how you slice it, the ultimate goal of the Hour Record is as simplistic as it gets: Ride a bike as far as you can in one hour.
But if you know anything about cycling, you know how narrow the margins really can get.
Anybody with a bike can get on it and start pedaling after the Hour Record. But anybody who’s serious about setting it has to find the edge against massively resourced teams of professionals who pluck from the industry’s best research and technology.
Follow Pinarello and Filippo Ganna as they chase it down. No spoilers.
