Eddy Merckx, an Hour Record holder in 1972 of 49.431 km on a steel bike, stated that Voigt's attempt of the Hour Record will bring more awareness of this challenge and encourage other riders to attempt to break this record.
Trek specially designed a bike for Jens' record attempt. See below for some awesome photos! This Hour Record attempt was being streamed live on YouTube, but if you missed it, you can still watch it here.
We included additional photos on our Flickr Page. Congratulations and Happy Belated Birthday, Jens!
