The 2012 Olympian and five-time UCI Road World Championships medallist who rides for the Boels Dolmans professional team will ride for the record on 27 February at the Colorado Springs Olympic Training Center Velodrome.
The 333.3-metre banked cement track sits at just over 6,000 feet above sea level and is covered by a newly-constructed winter dome.
Stevens will attempt to beat the current record of 46.882km set by Bridie O’Donnell (AUS) on 22 January 2016 in Adelaide.
“While attempting to break the UCI Hour Record is exciting for me and my career, I’m also proud to help shine a light on women’s cycling,” Stevens said. “This will be a special day, and it’s an honour to make my record attempt under the new dome at the Colorado Springs Olympic Training Center Velodrome.”
Stevens will the the fourth woman, after O’Donnell, Molly Shaffer Van Houweling (USA) and Sarah Storey (GBR), to tackle the hour Record since the UCI changed the rules governing an attempt.
“The current Women’s UCI Hour Record will be only five weeks old when Evelyn Stevens tries to establish a new mark,: UCI President Brian Cookson said.
"Bridie O’Donnell set a tough mark last month and I am looking forward tremendously to following this next challenge. It is clear that the excitement surrounding the iconic UCI Hour Record will be just as high in 2016 as it was last year when we saw six attempts on the men’s record and two on the women’s record.”
