Michael Teuber betters his own UCI Hour Record timed by Tissot
Paracyclist Michael Teuber smashed the 13 year old world hour record in the Para-Cycling class C1 clearly. The 50-year-old German Paralympic cyclist covered a total distance of 42,583 kilometers at the Berlin Velodrome (GER), bettering his existing world record (39,326km), set on 8 May 2005 in Augsburg (GER) by 3,257km.
Teuber made his successful attempt on the opening day of the Tissot UCI Track Cycling World Cup in Berlin (30 November-2 December). It is the very first time that a UCI-approved paracycling event has been held as part of a competition for able-bodied athletes.
