Tony Martin 'tempted' by Hour Record attempt

Tony Martin

Tony Martin (Omega Pharma-QuickStep) could help continue a new round of hour record attempts. The time trial world champion said that if Fabian Cancellara (Radioshack) tries then he would also be tempted.

"My rivals Fabian Cancellara and Bradley Wiggins talk about the hour record," Martin told Thüringer Allgemeine. "I also have it in mind. Being the fastest man in the world would be a nice title to have."
