If there's a temple of speed, it must be Grenchen's Tissot Velodrome. Based right in front of our office on the iconic Sportsstrasse (Sport Street), the city velodrome is one of the several high-end facilities we have at our disposal to test the future of cycling.
But this speed Mecca is more than just conveniently located a stone's throw from our HQ. The Tissot Velodrome is also one of the fastest on Earth and the top choice for the world's best riders to test their cycling prowess.
But don't just take our word for it. Look at the facts.
In August of 2022, the English Dan Bigham set the UCI World Hour Record here at the blistering pace of 55.548 km/h. Just two months after, the Italian rocket Filippo Ganna went further and set the current record at 56.792 km/h.
