From the Archives: Chris Boardman's World Hour Record Corima, 1995

September means it is nearly time for Interbike, so why not post a photo from the very first show I attended, a way back in 1995.

The Corima ridden by Chris Boardman to the World Hour Record in Bordeaux, France on 23 July 1993. The bike is a monocoque frame weighing 7.1 kilos, the four-spoke carbon rims (also by Corima) are paired with Continental tubulars. With 53 x 13 gearing and 170mm cranks Boardman spun at an average of 100.1 rpms.
