51.840 kilometers!

Autographed photo of Francesco Moser adopting Graeme Obree's riding style for an Hour Record attempt in 1994.

At this point, Chris Boardman was the Hour Record holder with 52.270 km.  Moser, who previously held the Hour Record for about 9 years and was the first Hour rider to break 50 km, did not set a new record — though he did beat Graeme Obree’s previous record of 51.596 km set in 1993.

A few months after this photo was taken, Obree reclaimed the Hour Record — riding 52.713 km.  His riding position was banned by the UCI a couple weeks later.

A great find from Bici Crono via HM7’s Tumblr.
