WattShop Week of Records

Join us in the Relentless Pursuit of Speed

We quite like breaking records here at WattShop. Masters Age Group Records, National Records, UCI World Records. You name it, we've done it. And we're not just about Hour Records; Individual Pursuit, Team Pursuit, Tandem, Kilo, the list goes on and we will too. But we've been keeping the fun to ourselves and we've decided it's time for that to change; we have a new challenge for you to set your sights on.

On 11th September, for one week only, you are invited to WattShop's Week of Records at Tissot Velodrome in Grenchen, Switzerland. This is your chance to get your hands on that title; National or World, Masters or Elite, the choice is yours. Take your cycling prowess to a new level with WattShop's specialist support to achieve your ultimate goal and put your name in the history books.

With a number of World Records under our belt, we have a wealth of knowledge and experience that we are ready to share. Concerning equipment choices, position optimisation and aerodynamics, our expertise is unmatched; we know what works; we know how to refine your entire set up to help maximise your potential and make your ambitions a reality.

What we are offering

For this event, there are two packages available:

1. The Full Package - £17,000 - Our experienced team of professionals will support you from start to finish. We will guide you through the preparation stages, bike optimisation, practice events and race build up, at your side all the way to the moment you cross the finish line as a new record holder. The formal requirements of a record attempt will be entirely managed by WattShop. We will provide aerodynamic expertise, record-breaking experience, equipment recommendations, and even nutritional & physiological advice. We will oversee every aspect of your record attempt, with no stone left unturned in your relentless pursuit of speed. You will arrive in the gate in the best possible position to achieve your goal.

2. The Independent Rider - £7,000 - Alternatively, the Independent Rider package is perfect for those who prefer to take on the challenge alone, but still want the official requirements of the record attempt taken care of. We'll arrange commissaires and anti-doping requisites, as well as track time in the days leading up to your attempt. We will manage the formal aspect of a record attempt so that when the time comes, it's just you, the bike, and the track.

Why Grenchen?

With a long history as a fast track, Tissot Velodrome is the first choice of venue for riders who want to break records; Jen Voigt, Rohan Dennis, Dan Bigham, Filippo Ganna, Joss Lowden, Ellen van Dijk, the list of record breakers at Grenchen goes on. Sitting at an altitude of 450m above sea level, Grenchen is at a sweet spot of lower air density but without a massive hit on oxygen partial pressure. With low pressure systems moving through in the late Summer, it isn't a coincidence that a number of riders chose this time of year for their World Record attempts in 2022.

We've been involved in a number of records at this track and we know it well. We know how to manage the atmosphere within the velodrome to ensure optimal air density and temperature, we know the town and we know the facilities, we have worked extensively here before, and now we want to share that with you. With our expert support and Grenchen's world-class facilities, you'll be well on your way to achieving your ultimate cycling objective.

    If I want the support but I am from South America it’s possible? For a national record or it has to be done in my country ?
