Record in sight for World Cycle Racing competitor

Mike Hall and Richard Dunnett

Just over over two months on from their departure in Greenwich, London, the contenders of the World Cycle Racing Grand Tour bidding to become the new round-the-world record holder looks to have been whittled down to one.

Great Britain's Mike Hall, who is riding for Quick Energy, has just passed the half way mark in the 18,000 mile odyssey, having clocked up a staggering 9,440 miles in just 58 days. He's way ahead of the remaining 11 riders (the closest is Martin Walker on 7,101 miles) and on track to eclipse Alan Bate's record of 106 days.

He's currently on the north island of New Zealand having already ridden across the Europe, Turkey, India, Australia and NZ's south island, and will soon begin a mammoth trek across North America.
