Ev7 UCI Hour Record – Sarah Storey
Dame Sarah Storey is the first woman since 2003 to tackle the UCI hour record. Set by Dutch cyclist Leontien Zijlaard Van Moorsel, Sarah had trained on the run-up to the attempt in the yet un-opened Derby Velodrome. Her target 46.065kms.
She had requested a ambient temp of around 25ºc, and with the packed Lee Valley VeloPark thought this would give her the best chance of success.
Sarah started her assault on the record, by marginally gaining a second or two over each of the early kilometers. She had been confident of her pace to the halfway point through training. But by the midway point her time had slipped by around thirty seconds on Van Moorsel. With the hardest part of the ride still to come, it looked like Sarah would fall a lot shorter than firstly anticipated. Her time slipped a bit further as the laps went by, but with the help of the audience and her supporters around the track, she managed to stabilise the deficit.
Approaching the final five minutes, it looked liked the shortfall would be un-bridgeable. Indeed, Sarah failed to take the title she had dreamed of getting, but the last three minutes had everyone on the edges of their seats as her pace increased to an almost un-believable sprint. Using every ounce of strength left in her body, Sarah managed 45.502kms, just over 500m short of Van Moorsel’s time.
Sarah broke two records in this attempt. Hat’s off to her grit and determination to fight all the way till the end. Taking some time to recover, trackside. Said it was a horrible experience that she didn’t fancy trying it again!
Sarah has set the best British time recorded over the hour, by a Women, and a new World Record for an C5 Paralympian athlete.

The first five points went to Sharakova, the second to Trebaite and the third to Romanyuta.
Three girls were allowed to gain a lap as the main contenders looked at each other. Jupha Somnet (MAS), Sofia Arreola Navarro (MEX) and Caroline Ryan (IRL).
