& # 39; I've been focusing on this for a long time, so I'm very happy to have achieved the record & # 39 ;, said Campenaerts after completing 221 laps of the cycling track.

& # 39; I am also happy that I can break through the magic 55 kilometers.

& # 39; I was optimistic in the first 30 minutes, but it was important to set a slower pace afterwards.

& # 39; I started to run a little slower, but I think I am still faster than Wiggins in every part of the race. & # 39;
