Since Jens Voigt broke the hour record, this test looks more and more riders.

Last month, the Austrian Matthias Brandle (IAM Cycling) set the record at 51.850 kilometers. But other people are interested in this record. The Belgian journalist Ruben Van Gucht has decided to make his own attempt on the record.

Van Gucht will make his attempt in ten days (on November 21st) at the Flemish Cycling Centre Eddy Merckx in Ghent. He has been training with help from Tom Boonen and Tom Steels. Van Gucht tweeted that he is expecting to ride between 38-40 kilometres.
