Australia's Jack Bobridge has broken Chris Boardman's 4000m individual pursuit world record of 4:11.114 today on Sydney's Dunc Gray Velodrome at the nation's elite track championships.
Bobridge had previously held the fastest 'non-superman' individual pursuit time - set during last year's Australian National Track Championships - but after stopping the clock at 4.10.534 this afternoon he now holds the fastest mark ever.
Boardman's time was set in 1996 using the now-banned 'superman' position at the Manchester velodrome and Bobridge's time of 4.14.427 set at the 2010 Australian track titles was considered the closest any rider would come to breaking the Englishman's record.
But after 15 years of trying, a rider has broken the barrier previously thought untouchable. Stay tuned to Cyclingnews for reaction from Bobridge after his momentous ride.
