The Hour

Bradley Wiggins sets off in two hours time in an attempt to break the world record for the hour. In short, riding round and round a velodrome track as fast as possible for an hour. He thinks he might be able to break through the 55 km barrier. Good luck Wiggo.

I went out and did some circuits in Trafford Park on Thursday night in my own hour attempt and managed 25.6 km. Less than half of what Wiggins may manage. But then I haven’t got a beard. Or an Olympians legs.

The lyrics of Round And Round apparently document New Order’s somewhat difficult relationship with Tony Wilson at the time and the money pit that was Factory Records and the Hacienda.
