Sir Bradley Wiggins' hour record attempt: How to watch
Last Updated: 07/06/15 6:29pm
Sir Bradley Wiggins will attempt to break the UCI Hour Record at the Lee Valley VeloPark in London on Sunday, June 7 - and everyone in the UK can watch thanks to live coverage from Sky Sports on television and online.
The attempt will take place from 6.30pm-7.30pm BST and we will screen every minute - uninterrupted by adverts - in no fewer than five places:
- Sky Sports 2/2HD
- www.skysports.com (free live stream, UK only)
- The Sky Sports App (free live stream, UK only)
- Sky Sports' YouTube channel (www.youtube.com/user/SkySportsOfficial, free live stream, UK only)
- Freeview channel PICK (replacing the regular programming)
Our programme will run from 6pm-8pm, with 30 minutes of build-up and 30 minutes of reaction afterwards.
We will have an exclusive interview with Wiggins, as well as expert studio guests Dame Sarah Storey and Rob Hayles giving their insight and opinion.
Wiggins will look to break the existing record of 52.937km, which was set by fellow Briton Alex Dowsett in May.
Wiggins said: “Seeing Chris Boardman take on the hour record as a kid inspired me to get on my bike and I want to do the same for the next generation. I know Sky will help make it a huge event because of their longstanding commitment to cycling.”
Robert Tansey, Brand Director for Sky, said: “Bradley is one of the few characters who transcends cycling and the fact that tickets to the event sold out in minutes shows just how popular his record attempt is going to be. Together Sky and Bradley have already shared in some historic moments and we hope people across the UK will enjoy this next one with us.”
Support for Sir Bradley Wiggins’ attempt to break the hour record is part of Sky’s long-standing commitment to cycling. Sky’s partnership with British Cycling has helped transform cycling at all levels in the UK and inspired over 1.7m more people in Britain to cycle regularly since 2008.
