American doctor misses world cycling record by 4 minutes, 57 Seconds

(Vocus) June 12, 2010 -- Heartbreaking is the only way to describe Dan McGehee’s third attempt at the 100-mile cycling track world record. He started his attempt at 10:13 am, June 12th, which is when his daughter Hope was born. Today, he missed the record by only 4 minutes and 57 seconds. At noon, he was on track to beat the record after 467 of the 643.75 laps. Twenty minutes later, McGehee's pace started to slow a little, according to Seth Hassell of Doctor Finders. The current record is held by Rod Evans at 3:47:26

Deciding to go for a third attempt was a tough decision for McGehee after experiencing the physical exhaustion of such an attempt. Whether or not he will try again, is a decision McGehee will make after he’s re-cooperated.

A broken foot in a track race pushed McGehee into the world of cycling. McGehee has since competed in over 100 triathlons and twice participated in the Kona Ironman Triathlon World Championships. In addition to being the current UMCA 100-mile Road Record holder, McGehee’s accomplishments include numerous victories in ultra-endurance races with distances of over 500 miles.

Training for the event included sleeping in an oxygen tent, cycling 300-500 miles per week and eating and sleeping well. However, McGehee made sure his optometry business did not suffer and was not sacrificed in lieu of his record attempt. McGehee spent the last two weekends on call so he could take this weekend off to attempt the record.
