Adam Duggleby – the new 12 Hour National Competition Record Holder

-

I know, we keep harping back to the 70’s.

But back then the 12 hour competition record being broken in the RTTC (now CTT) National 12 hour championships would have merited a front cover and a couple of pages in Cycling Weekly.

Now?

One column on page nine. And the full result? – forget it. Perhaps it’s because the magazine thinks that ‘stuff like that’ is ‘all on the net?

Anyway…

Here at VeloVeritas we still get excited about competition records and this year have interviewed the current ‘10’ and ‘25’ record holder, big Polish flyer, Marcin Bialoblocki – who was recently second to former World Road Race Champion, Michal Kwiatkowski in the Polish National Time Trial Championship – and just the other day we had up an interview with 50 mile record holder, Paul Hart.

It’s only proper then that we should ‘have a word’ with 33 year-old Adam Duggleby (Vive le Velo), who last year broke the ‘100’ record with 3:16:51 and last weekend in the Farnborough & Camberley CC National 12 Hour Championship in Hampshire recorded 322 miles (the official distance not yet available), adding around four miles to Andy Wilkinson’s (Port Sunlight Wheelers) 2012 record of 317.97.

He’s also the reigning BBAR, something else Cycling Weekly has lost interest in despite the magazine’s role in initiating and chronicling the competition for many years.
