Aaron Gate has broken the New Zealand 4000m cycling time trial record.

At the Vantage Elite and Under 19 track nationals in Invercargill, Gate produced a time of 4:08.761. He beat his own record of 4:09.25 he set in Cambridge.

Only two other men, Italian Filippo Ganna and American Ashton Lambie, have ever gone faster. Ganna’s world record, set at the 2020 world championships, is a remarkable 4:01.934.

To put the result into context the last time Gate raced in Invercargill, he rode a 4min 08sec qualifying ride. However, this was with a team of 4 cyclists so to do it individually is a superb effort.
