Jack Bobridge will attempt the Hour Record tomorrow in what is part of a grander career plan that coach Tim Decker has established in the run to the 2016 Rio Olympics.

Bobridge holds the 4km individual pursuit world record and in Melbourne, Australia this weekend aims to add the Hour to his repertoire with a distance all parties hope will stand for more than the going month.
