Missouri Hour Record
April 24, 2021
The Missouri Hour Record is a one-day event on Saturday, April 24th at the Penrose Park Velodrome in St. Louis, MO. The Missouri Hour Recordwill see how far the fastest cyclists in Missouri can ride in one hour, with just one gear, and no power or computer data for assistance.

- If a Time Trial or Triathlon bike is chosen, instead of a Track Pursuit Bike, only one gear may be chosen, and this gear must be “locked” during the attempt.
- While a power meter and cycling computer may be connected and running during the attempt, it must be hidden from sight.
