September 21, 2013 – The Trek Red Truck Racing Team, along with presenting sponsor Mosaic Homes, is proud to announce a new world hour record set by Masters rider Chris Wilberg of North Vancouver, BC.
The record of 38.7km was set on September 15th in Los Angeles, CA under the inspection of UCI commissaires. The hour record set is in the Masters category and was achieved using an “old-school Eddy Merckx” style bike setup. The only aerodynamic accessory used by Wilberg was his team issue Louis Garneau skinsuit.
Wilberg’s successful hour record assault follows up on the continued success of Trek Red Truck Masters team member, former Olympian, and Tour de l’Aude Points Champion Sara Neil. Neil sprinted to the World Championship title in the 50+ Masters category in the World Masters Games held in Turin, Italy this August.
The Trek Red Truck team congratulates Chris and Sara, who continue to inspire our younger generation of elite riders.
