Fresh off winning the Danish Pro TT a couple weeks ago for the 3rd year in a row, setting the Danish Hour Record earlier this year, and winning Chrono des Nations last fall, he is traveling to Mexico to attempt the UCI World Hour Record on July 26. I don't know about you, but I think that is very cool for someone with a day job. Especially because he has a good chance of getting the record!
He's got a few sponsorships, but not enough to cover the ~$20k cost of doing this, so he has a fund raiser on Facebook to try to minimize his out of pocket expense. https://www.facebook.com/donate/777116082676639/
So. He went 52.318 km in Denmark earlier this year. I know he has made some small improvements since then. 54.526 km is what he is chasing. What do you think? A lot will depend on his response to altitude.
