Victor Campenaerts has himself Tuesday night in the history books put the world hour record to break. In Mexico he drove the first ever more than 55 kilometres. It was Stig Broeckx the first to whom he thought: “We’re going to eat a pancake in the pannenkoekenboot of Dessel.”

“This is fantastic”, they said in the first response of an exhausted Victor Campenaerts at Sporza. “I’ve got yesterday a message received from Stig Broeckx. Stig, as promised, we are going to eat a pancake in the pannenkoekenboot of Dessel.”

“My starttempo was perhaps slightly too optimistic. That I felt half-way. They had a distance of 55,2 km provided, I just wanted to break the record. I turned around, the 16”2 in the beginning, but an hour has no secrets.”

“I needed something to throttle, my rhythm found at the end of character accelerate. The fans that were here, were fantastic. The last month was a highlight, and maybe a highlight to remain. Everyone was here for me. That 55 miles was a magic number – super that this is successful.”
