Hot off his success in the opening world tour event of the year, Dennis set a new world hour record in Switzerland on Sunday.


With the record of 51.852km in his sights, the young BMC rider looked in control from the outset and despite easing off the pace in the final few minutes he finished having covered a distance of 52.491km.


Many believe Dennis to be the heir apparent to 2011 Tour de France champion Cadel Evans‘ throne as the number one rider at BMC and the number one rider in Australia.
