Sir Bradley Wiggins has revealed he is targeting a ride of 55.250km when he attempts to break the UCI Hour Record on June 7, equating to 221 laps of the velodrome.

The former Team Sky man insists he is not underestimating Alex Dowsett's mark of 52.937km, set in Manchester on May 2, but did claim to Sky Sports News that if weather conditions are right he could go a lot further.
