Joe Robinson 4 Nov 2019 The Italian's time was made even more impressive by being set at sea level Team Ineos rider Filippo Ganna has set an incredible individual pursuit World Record of 4.02.647 to win the Track World Cup in Minsk. This time saw the Italian set the record twice in one day after having already ridden a 4.04.252 in the qualifying round on Sunday 3rd November. Going two seconds quicker in the final, he comfortably beat John Archibald and previous record-holder Aston Lambie into second and third respectively. Lambie held the record before Sunday having set a time of 4.05.423 in Cochabamba, Bolivia while riding the Pan-American Games.
