Alex Dowsett announces new Hour Record date

Alex Dowsett's 'Perfect Hour' will take place in Manchester on the afternoon of May 2

Alex Dowsett will attempt to set a new Hour Record in Manchester on May 2 having recovered from the broken collarbone that forced him to postpone his February attempt.

The Movistar rider has also moved the location from London’s Lee Valley VeloPark to Manchester’s National Cycling Centre, the same place where Chris Boardman set his UCI-approved record in 2000.
