Bridie O’Donnell set the new ‪#‎UCIHourRecord‬ of 46.882km 22jan2016 . Last record 46.273 km. CONGRATULATIONS.
She rode on CerveloT4 with C-bear no creak bottom bracket, top 3 in bottom bracket efficiency test by Friction Facts.

Walked and talked after the ride - no problem. She definitely took the advise to keep pace. Preparation, and training made a difference. Great job to coach, Ken Ballhause,@HPTek_au

Some tips from Lotto Soudal mechanic - Steven Van Olmen 12 /13 years with the Lotto Team
-one of the unsung heroes of the peloton.

The most important thing for bad weather is the tire pressure of the tubulars. We bring the pressure down, but the actual pressure depends on rider weight.

You cannot dispute the disc brake performance in the rain.
The technology is good for small groups or cyclo-tourists, but not so much in the peloton.

UCI’s plan to possibly scrap the 6.8kg weight limit on bikes?
Perhaps some rules relating to the frame, i.e. a one kilogram minimum for frames, but with no restrictions on say drivetrain components.

If you could make improvements to a bicycle, what would it be?
A powermeter that is integrated with the shifting to automatically shift gears

Is there a favorite rider you have worked with?
André is always so thankful for the work we do.
It is not about him being a big name rider, rather how good of a person he is.

Any special tips for bike setup?
When I lock the quick release, I never do it in the stand – always on the ground – the wheel will always be aligned straight on the ground versus the stand.

The name Lotto has been affiliated with professional road cycling since 1985. Originally known as Lotto, the Belgian lottery has sponsored the team since its inception, with its name present at all times, despite various co-sponsorship changes over the years. From 2015 onwards, the team is known as Lotto Soudal. Soudal is the team’s newest co-sponsor, …

End-of-season review of c-bear bicycle ceramic bearings.
http://ace-lesotho-mtb-team.info/end-of-season-c-bear-cera…/
Our 2015 race season is over and this gives us a chance to evaluate the C-Bear Ceramic Bearings bottom brackets that the team have been using for the whole season. We have been very impressed by the quality and performance of the C-Bear bearings. Bearings are hidden away and we don't really pay ...

22Jan2016,@Bridie_OD attempts to break the ‪#‎UCIHourRecord‬ of 46.273 km, Adelaide, Super Dome, with C-BEAR bottom brackets ceramic bearings.

C-bear ceramic “bearings & jockey wheels have been AWESOME - I'm so happy with them, Thankyou!” Bridie O’Donnell.

Hour Attempt is a solo race, but the organization, efforts and expenses are nothing sololy simple - all the planning, training, co-ordinating, getting the biological passport , being aerodynamics and getting the gears.

“It was wanting to do something exceptional, wanting to fill expectations that I had had of myself at the time trials. I feel like I haven’t yet gotten the best out of myself and I also think I’m still improving,” said O’Donnell.

The last 1.5yr, since the change in UCI rules in May 2014, 8 men and 2 women did the Hour Attempt. The women’s record stood untouched for the past 12 years until Molly Shaffer van Houweling reset the record to 46.273 kilometres sept 2015 . Bridie O’Donnell will be the third woman to take on the challenge, both using ‪#‎CerveloT4‬.

While the men challengers are professional cyclists and riders with a depth of experience in track cycling. Record holder Molly and Bridie are both amateurs, while Molly is a law professor at UC Berkeley, Bridie is a physician in Melbourne. Both are strong time trialists on the road but neither rode on the track before contemplating an hour attempt.

O'Donnell won the 2008 Australian national time trial title, silver in 2010 and 2015, and bronze in 2012 and 2014. The seven-time Australian rowing champion and Ironman triathlete, at the age of 35 decided to focus her considerable energies on elite road cycling. In recent years Bridie, now 41, focuses on racing the National Road Series (NRS), manages and races with the Total Rush team.

You can watch the event LIVE streaming on the UCI website (uci.ch) /Youtube channel (youtube.com/user/ucichannel)

First to offer:

2. aluminium precisoned CNC housing rather than plastic(delrin) housing
