About Rohan Dennis

Rohan Dennis is an Olympic silver medallist on the track. A member of BMC Racing Team’s World Championship winning time-trial team in 2014, and fresh off winning the Santos Tour Down Under 2015 and a 2nd place at the Australian National individual time-trial championships. But, probably more important than any palamares - is his ability to hurt. Can’t be there in person? We got it covered, you can watch our live stream here.

About the Hour Record

The World Hour Record is the greatest distance traveled on a bike in 1 hour and is one of the most prestigious records in the sport of cycling. The very first record was set in 1893 by the founder of the Tour de France, Henri Desgranges (35 km 325). The current record - 51 km 852 - was established in 2014 by Austrian Matthias Brändle.

UCI Hour Record Event Program

After a show training session from the Swiss National Track Team and the presentation of BMC’s racing teams (including a special appearance of Julien Absalon, UCI XCO Mountain bike World Champion 2014) the Australian will begin the challenge at 14:00
The starting gun will be fired by fellow Australian cyclist Cadel Evans (2011 Tour de France winner and 2009 World Champion) who placed 3rd at the Tour Down Under. This will be Evans’ first official duty in his new role as ambassador for BMC Switzerland.
