It's now been confirmed by The CTT that TT specialist Marcin Bialoblocki has broken the UK national 100 mile time trial record, taking over three minutes off Adam Duggleby’s previous record set in 2017 to lay down a blistering new mark of 3:13:37.
Bialoblocki, who is Polish but now settled in Britain and riding for the Nopinz Symec team, broke the record at the East District CA Championship in Norfolk yesterday, aboard a Pinarello Bolide with disc brakes and Aerocoach AEOX wheels, wearing a skinsuit and aero socks from NoPinz. Data shared by Bialoblocki from his TrainingPeaks account shown a average normalised power of 340 watts for the duration of the ride, or 4.29 watts per kilo. He has also taken to Strava to share his little morning jaunt.
Bialocki told CTT: “I’m very happy – it’s been a goal of mine for a while so it’s good to finally get it. ”
On his Facebook page Bialoblocki said: "I dedicate this record to my friend Phil Griffiths thanks which all that was possible (sic), I had the opportunity to compete for many years and the pleasure of using the best bikes in the world. Phil was 100 mile National Competition record holder in 76’ -79".
Arriving at road.cc in 2017 via 220 Triathlon Magazine, Jack dipped his toe in most jobs on the site and over at eBikeTips before being named the new editor of road.cc in 2020, much to his surprise. His cycling life began during his students days, when he cobbled together a few hundred quid off the back of a hard winter selling hats (long story) and bought his first road bike - a Trek 1.1 that was quickly relegated to winter steed, before it was sadly pinched a few years later. Creatively replacing it with a Trek 1.2, Jack mostly rides this bike around local cycle paths nowadays, but when he wants to get the racer out and be competitive his preferred events are time trials, sportives, triathlons and pogo sticking - the latter being another long story.
