    Default New 24 hour record

    567.5 miles by Dizzy Diseviscourt.

    The course was a 4.5 km trail around a water reservoir in Luxembourg, about 200 laps.

    Understatement! Curious about the calories burned and how they were ingested. Dizzy is a good name for this guy.

    That would beat Strasser's mark by 10 miles. Impressive...

    I mixed up the 7 & 6 on my original post, sorry.

    Edit: Actually, the official distance is indeed 567.5 miles, although he rode 576.5 Miles.

    Put road tires on it and it is a road bike. Put TT bars on it and a stem that allow for a lower position like an ergostem and it is a time trial bike. The name of the bike is irrelevant.

    Up to a point that is certainly true.

    I found his face book feed on the effort. It was done on a full TT bike so the initial info is wrong.

    But the path he did it on has a 5 foot wall all the way around and in many places a steep incline down to the lake. This provides a huge wind shadow to draft in the whole way...

    I don't see how this will not disqualify the attempt. Strasser did his record on an airport runway.

    I don’t know if it’s possible to know wind effect, without inspecting the course on the given day.
    Barriers can concentrate wind effect, depending upon speed and direction, and his path was multidirectional. (Venturi effect, as often seen in city streets).

    I guess we’ll see what those who certify such efforts think.

    As far as power output, I calculated about 245 watts average power for him on a TT bike.

    I've always thought the same thing but don't say that too loudly. The marketing gurus hired by the big box manufacturers and their believers will flip out.

    this is a straight up insane record.
    i would never ever want to attempt it. 24 hour racing of any kind is nuts.

    now the perhaps even crazier transcontinental, that sounds like a good time. :) I just cant imagine riding in a circle for 24 hours without losing it and riding into or off of the reservoir.

    Yes! And the drugs appear to be working very well.
