Cyclist Alekseev talks about the hour record in Krylatskoye: “Now he plans a world record”

Russian cyclist Pavel Alekseev told that he would like to break the world record for hours in his age category, but for now he needs to start preparing and clarify all organizational issues.

On Thursday, Alekseev, 53, set the Russian Masters hour record in his age category, after covering 47.675 km at the Krylatskoye Olympic Velodrome.

— In principle, it’s normal, there were more ambitious plans, I achieved better times in training, but a race is a race, everything happens a little differently here.

— Do you want to aim for the world record of 51.2 km in your age category?

— For a long time, the record time was about 49 km, but last year in Los Angeles an American runner covered 51.2 km. We are already planning to participate in setting a world record, we need to clarify how this can be organized. Everything is real, we have to prepare and ride on a 250-meter track, in warmer conditions,” Alekseev told .

In the recent history of Russian cycling, no hour record has been recorded. Vyacheslav Ekimov set a world hour record of 49.67 km in 1986. As was informed by the Russian Cycling Federation, Alekseev’s record will be recorded.
