Not Jana, but Dan Bigham is attacking Campinaarts' world record with Ineos this month |  Cycling

Dan Bigham on August 19 will try to do better than the 55,089 kilometers that Victor Campinerts covered in one hour in 2019.

The Briton works as a performance engineer for Ineos Grenadiers, but he’s certainly no stranger to working against time. In 2021 he broke the British watch record (54, 723 km) in Grinchen in Switzerland. Now he also wants to attack the world clock record on the same track.

“The world clock record has been an important part of my life for years since my first attempt as a student in 2014. I am curious as to what I will be able to do now with the support of the team.”

Bigham is not under contract with the Ineos Grenadiers, but as an employee who can use the bikes, the clothes, and the knowledge of the team.

Ineos Grenadiers may also pave the way with this attempt for a later attempt by another rider, for example Filippo Ganna.

“We want to lay out a blueprint for future endeavors,” Bigham says. “But this attempt is not just for track cycling now. Every week our team participates in road time trials and the many details we are working on can help with that.”
