Jens Voigt completed more than 200 laps of the velodrome beating the previous mark of 49.700km - set by Czech rider Ondrej Sosenka in 2005. Jens set the world record mark of 51.115km. (An increase of 1.1415km) "It's among the biggest highlights of my career," said Voigt, who will now retire from cycling. "To be up there with the likes of Merckx and Boardman, I'm now proud that my name is with them."
