Okay, fan of the Hour I am, but this is just warped!

News has filtered through to us that a 49 year-old Dutchman will attempt to break the World Hour Record for riding without a saddle (or a seatpost). Maas van Beek, a former tandem pilot of Jan Mulder, will attempt to better the mark of 45.848 km set by none other than Fausto Coppi on the track in Alkmaar, The Netherlands, on Saturday, October 8.

He?s doing it for a good cause: to raise money for the Polar van de Donck foundation, which helps children in Africa who have AIDS. – seatless hour record
