Hammer sets new world mark in pursuit

Hammer sets new world mark in pursuit

Don't miss a moment from Paris-Roubaix and Unbound Gravel, to the Giro d’Italia, Tour de France, Vuelta a España, and everything in between when you join Outside+.

American Sarah Hammer clocked what’s expected to be verified as a world record in the 3,000-meter individual pursuit Tuesday at the Pan American Cycling Championships in Mexico.

Hammer finished in 3:22.269, more than two seconds faster than the world mark set by New Zealand’s Sarah Ulmer at the 2004 Athens Olympics.

The UCI did not immediately confirm Hammer’s time as the world record, although USA Cycling expects that to happen since it was set at a continental championships conducted under UCI rules.

Hammer’s blistering time came in the qualifying round at Aguascalientes.

She went on to win the gold medal final.
