BEST SINGLE SPEED EVENT 24 HOURS
The Portuguese ultra-cyclist Tiago Cardoso has been the protagonist of what we have considered to date as the best event in the 24-hour “single speed” bicycle modality.
We say this because in the same event the same athlete registered several record marks.
The incipient cycling modality “single speed”, which is growing exponentially among lovers of this sport, consists of reducing the bicycle to its purest essence, without elements distracting from its primary function.
It is a bicycle that does not have a gearshift system, which would be the closest thing to the first bicycle we had in childhood.
To the record of Tiago Cardoso, already epic in itself,
(it is not within the reach of anyone to stay 24 hours on a bicycle at a competitive level) it would be necessary to add an epic bonus if possible for having managed to carry out a feat of this type in the times of the terrible Covid pandemic.
Repeated changes of dates, difficulties in training due to repeated confinements and family realities that at the moment are even more difficult to manage.
