Joss Lowden – the New Women’s World Hour Record Holder!


We recently ran an interview with Italy’s Vittoria Bussi, the women’s world hour record holder – best make that ‘former’ holder of the women’s world hour record…

When we spoke to Britain’s Joss Lowden back in July she told us about her intention of attacking the world hour record. She’d already exceeded Bussi’s 48.007 kilometres in a ‘test’ ride with 48.160 kilometres, but ‘tests’ are one thing, the pressure of an official UCI attempt is another.

However, she turned intent into action on the boards of the Grenchen Velodrome in Switzerland with 48.405 kilometres on 30th September, well in excess of her own ‘test’ ride distance and Bussi’s record.  

The next day her partner, Dan Bigham broke Bradley Wiggins’ British hour record on the same boards, sealing an exciting couple of days for the pair.

We caught up with Joss after the British Championships where she had a successful campaign with silver in the Time Trial and bronze in the Road Race.
