    @ ac282 it is to do with the change in UCI rules. see the velonews link on page 1

    Boardman rode on a fairly conventional (cormia?) pursuit bike in 93. I’d be very surprised if it gave him an advantage over a speed concept

    Is it only me that thinks referring to the fella as ‘Jensie’ is more than a tad bent? Or is it an established nickname..?

    Shame he’s not likely to have it for long

    I quite like that about the hour though, it never seems that much about who’s got the record right now, just having been a holder remains a big deal.

    The smaller front wheel is the problem like Rominger.

    I’m fairly sure the Corima had a full size front wheel. It’s quite clearly illegal under current rules due to the non-straight tubes though. As suggested above almost certainly no more aero than current legal frames, hence not beating Boardman ’93 could be seen as a failure (mind you Indurain and Rominger almost certainly had no advantage over a current legal track bike with their bikes – just pharmacological advantages).

    Well that was surprisingly close today by Brändle.

    I wonder if there will be a bit of a flurry to take it on properly now?
