Kyle Gordon – At Altitude on Mount Teide

-

Last season, after the Scottish Kilometre Championship we said that not many 100 milers have become kilometre riders. We were talking about that man Kyle Gordon, of course, he holds the Scottish 100 mile record and had just won the Scottish kilometre title.

Well, he went and did it again, stepping up to the kilometre podium in the British Championship, narrowly ceding silver to team mate Dan Bigham with the third HUUB man, fellow Scot, Jonny Wale taking gold.

Best ‘have a word’ we thought – especially with that Bolivia gig on the horizon.

When we caught up with Kyle he was at last month’s first HUUB altitude camp in Tenerife on the famous Teide volcano where all those Sky/Ineos Tour wins were hatched.

A second camp follows this month* before the flights to Bolivia with the team pursuit record now a tad more difficult to break given the Danes’ – and Italians’ – recent demonstrations in the Worlds on the Berlin velodrome.
