A week of falling TT records

It’s been a month of falling records on the UK TT scene! First up the men’s 10-mile record was obliterated by Marcin Bialoblocki who clocked a mind blowing time of 16:35 averaging over 36mph to do so. He crushed the old record of 17:20 set by Alex Dowsett and is now the only man ever to go under the 17 minute barrier!

James Gullen of Pedal Heaven also went under Dowsett’s old record with a time of 17:09 an incredible ride overshadowed by Marcin’s superhuman effort.

Then a few days later the women’s 10-mile record was also smashed (again). This time Hayley Simmonds took the record back from Anna Turvey, posting a time of 18 minutes 36 seconds to become the only woman ever to have gone under 19 minutes!

    1. Absolutely. I’d be lucky to even come close to that time on 10 miles worth of downhill! They must have been in quite a hurry to get to the cafe… ;-)


  2. James Gullen is local to me here in Lancaster and so word soon got round about his ridiculous time. But that aero position by Bialoblocki is something else, isn’t it!
