Para-Cyclist Darren Kenny announced this week that he will be tackling the Para-Cycling Athletes Hour Record during the Copenhagen round of the Track World Cup on 14th February.
Darren, who is the current holder of the Absolute Hour Record at 41.817Km, is hoping to repeat the same feature as Chris Boardman and hold both records.
The attempt is being privately sponsored by Space and Solutions of Christchurch, Dave Mellor Cycles and Specialized Cycling Glasses.
Darren said: "The Danish organisers have been great, and I'm really grateful for the help and support I have been given for the attempt"
"While the effort required is pretty tough, the real difficulty is trying to stay that position. The arms, shoulders and neck take a real pounding; even riding in a straight line becomes a problem."
