I don't expect everyone who starts to finish, this will be tough, 32 mph for an hour at 7000'+ altitude is going to crush all but the Swiss, but even if you can only hang for a few laps you will have contributed to the record attempt and we welcome your efforts. It will be a race of attrition, competition will not be necessary. I expect less than 10 to finish. > > What's in it for me? > If we beat Eddy s record, the finishers will get their names inscribed on a giant silver trophy cup to be bestowed to the winner for safe keeping until the next hour record is set, whereupon the new record holders will take custody of the Hour of Power Cup. > > Even if we dont beat Eddy Merckx, we will still win since its the first one attempted.
