Alex Dowsett says that his "dream scenario" would be to break Bradley Wiggins's Hour Record this year, before aiming to top Chris Boardman's mark set using the stretched out "Superman" position in 1996.

Dowsett is planning another attempt at the Hour Record in the second half of the year, looking to retake the record that he lost to Wiggins in June 2015.
