Victor Campenaerts has given Alex Dowsett a ’50-50’ chance of breaking his UCI Hour Record, suggesting he would not look to reclaim it if it does fall in Mexico on Wednesday. 

Campenaerts set the current benchmark of 55.089 kilometres in April 2019, finally bettering the mark set in 2015 by Bradley Wiggins, who himself dispossessed Dowsett after just a month.
