Bobridge breaks Boardman's pursuit record

Bobridge in action

Australian Jack Bobridge has broken Chris Boardman's 15-year-old individual pursuit record during the Australian track national championships.

Boardman's former world record of four minutes 11.114 seconds over 4,000 metres set in 1996 using the now banned aerodynamic 'superman' riding position was bettered by 21-year-old Bobridge's four minutes and 10.534 seconds.

Nigel Wynn
Former Associate Editor

Nigel Wynn worked as associate editor on, he worked almost single-handedly on the Cycling Weekly website in its early days. His passion for cycling, his writing and his creativity, as well as his hard work and dedication, were the original driving force behind the website’s success. Without him, would certainly not exist on the size and scale that it enjoys today. Nigel sadly passed away, following a brave battle with a cancer-related illness, in 2018. He was a highly valued colleague, and more importantly, an exceptional person to work with - his presence is sorely missed.
