Movistar Team rider visits Drag2Zero's facility at Mercedes AMG Petronas HQ in Brackley before UCI Hour Record attempt in Manchester (May 2nd)

Alex Dowsett spent his Monday on a final wind tunnel session before taking on the UCI Hour Record in less than two weeks' time. The Movistar Team rider tested all materials he'll sport during his #PerfectHour on May 2nd at Drag2Zero's facility in the Mercedes AMG Petronas F1 team wind tunnel, in Brackley.

Preparations on the wind tunnel included adjustments on the final skinsuit by Endura, as well as all materials provided by hour record partners Canyon & Power2Max. Dowsett will continue to train at home, with some velodrome sessions still scheduled for him this week, before heading to Manchester next Monday. Tickets for his record attempt are still available (link:
