It’s been called cycling’s ultimate test of speed, strength and endurance. Only six riders have won the Tour de France and broken the one hour record – Lucien Petit-Breton (France), Fausto Coppi (Italy), Jacques Anquetil (France), Eddy Merckx (Belgium), Miguel Indurain (Spain), Bradley Wiggins (Great Britain).
