Sir Dave Brailsford is backing fellow knight Bradley Wiggins to break Alex Dowsett's new Hour Record mark on June 7, saying the former Team Sky rider will not be fazed by the weight of expectation on his shoulders.

Dowsett set his new mark of 52.937km in Manchester on May 2, beating Rohan Dennis's old mark by over 400m and said he may be willing to have another attempt if Wiggins, or anyone else, breaks his record.
