New Track Record for Hartwell
American Erin Hartwell may have to change how he prepares for his races: not much training (new 6 week old baby), travel from Colombia for 20 straight hours, and donÃ¢â‚¬Å¡t get on the track until you do your Kilometre run. The result? A new track record! Hartwell beat the old record of 1:05.386 set by Shane Kelly (AUS) at the Commonwealth Games in 1994. His time was 1:04.772. Second place Frederic Lancien of France also beat the record with a 1:04.885. In third was Stefan Mimke (GER) with 1:05.451. All were full of praise for the quality of the track, saying it is the smoothest concrete track that they have ever ridden on.
