Dame Sarah Storey said she gave it the best she could in her Hour record attempt at London’s Lee Valley Velodrome, even though she fell short of the target by 563m.

Storey, the 11-time Paralympic gold medallist, was aiming to best Leontien van Moorsel's 46.065km set in 2003 in Mexico City, which equated to just over 184 laps of the velodrome track.
