World record achievement

On 11th January 2020 at the Derby Velodrome Wayne Harrod, who served with the 1st Battalion and had to have his leg amputated as the result of an accident whilst on pre-deployment training for Operations in Afghanistan, took on the Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) MC4 one hour challenge.

This tough event would challenge any person but he went on to set a world record.

He completed 42.460 kilometre making this a new world record, this was 171 laps with the previous record being 168.

Wayne has been in training for many months, subjected to compulsory anti-doping testing, but says the challenge has took its toll but it was all worth it.

Whilst justifiably incredibly proud of his achievement he does not want to stand forever and hopes others are encouraged to dig deep and challenge it.
