He's not even close so far. I guess any rando can start a hype with "Hey, I'll attempt to break the WR, go watch me!!!!" :p

Not close to Wiggins no, definitely close for an all-time top-3 :d 

 

Which is not bad for a Continental rider.

"If he breaks the record, that shows the record can be broken."

 

Thank you Mr Alex Dowsett, valuable inside info.

Yep, altitude is generally not great for endurance. It's awesome for short events, but the longer it gets, the harder the lack of oxygen makes it (which is why in speed skating the 500m at altitude has relatively way better times than the 10km). 

 

Plus air pressure went up today, after two weeks of perfect conditions, which is also not helping.
