Albany cycling sensation Craig Wiggins has his eyes on yet another record.

This time it is the Munda Biddi Trail cycling record.

Wiggins, a road and track cycling star, plans to attempt to ride the Munda Biddi Trail in record time and eclipse the mark set by Baldivis man Callum Henderson last week.

Henderson raced from Albany to Mundaring in three days, 16 hours and 17 minutes. Having spotted the new record, Wiggins plans to go even quicker.

“I’ve got the record in my sights,” Wiggins said.

“It should be a bit of fun.

“I’ll give it a crack in the next month.

“ I reckon I’ve just got to sort out a few of the logistics.

“I need to beat 3.66 days, that’s the new record now and I think it’s around the 1100km distance.

“I’ve done a bit of off-road stuff, but not to that extent.

“That is a couple of big, long days on the bike but I’ll give it a shot.”
