Dan Bigham – Mixing it with the World’s Best in the Track World Cups

-

With the third round of the Tissot World Cup coming up in Berlin on November 30th those HUUB Wattbike boys have pulled of a major coup by signing the fastest man alive over four kilometres, world record holder Ashton Lambie.

VeloVeritas spoke to the man from Kansas when he smashed troubled Aussie Jack Bobridge’s 4:10:534 with a stunning 4:07:251 ride in Aguascalientes earlier this year.

It’s another chapter in the remarkable story of a team of young men – including Scotland’s John Archibald – who, without the massive funding available to national teams, have gone from World Cup ‘curiosity’ to a major force in world team pursuiting, getting the better of some of the fastest teams out there.

We caught up with the man behind the team and the holder of the record for most British titles won in one season – eight – Dan Bigham, after he returned from a successful foray to Canada where round two of the Tissot World Cup took place on the boards of the Milton Velodrome in Ontario where the men in black came away with silver.

Their riding took them ahead of GB in third spot with just the dynamic Danes besting them.
