The professional cyclist  Timothy rugg has made a whopping 4.800 kilometers on the roller in 13 days in a row.

As reported IberobikeTimothy he had considered training on the roller at least 480 kilometers a day for 10 days, although in the end he could not reach this figure and had to decrease the number of daily kilometers.

The first day he realized that he would have to extend the days of his challenge

The day the challenge started it was more than 27º C in Tucson, Arizona, and after 6 hours on the reel, and after taking a short break, he realized that he was dehydrated.

He placed two roller training fans, one focused on the upper part and one on the whole body

After this he had to rearrange your challenge, and lower the level of demand, changing from 10 to 13 days to complete the 4.800 kilometers

In the days that the challenge has lasted diverse lives with their followers, and solidarity challenges to raise money
