Finally common sense prevails.
Yes admittedly technology improves over time, and that will have some influence on distances, but still hopefully it'll bring back the interest, magic and prestige there was in the early 90's when Obree, Boardman, Indurain and Rominger all went head to head.
The biggest influence now on the distance is going to be the track used, as that can have even more influence than skinsuit, tubs, helmets, bikes, wheels. No good having all the best kit then riding on a slow track. My bet is anyone going for the record would be stupid not to do it on the Aguascalientes track in Mexico.
