A huge congratulations to Joss Lowden who set a record for the UCI ‘Women’s Hour’, a prestigious achievement in the world of cycling.

Joss, who rides for professional cycling team Drops-Le Col, cycled an incredible 48.4km in 60 minutes at the Velodrome Suisse in Grenchen, Switzerland. To complete the feat, she wore specialist kit designed and made by Puma Private Equity portfolio company Le Col.

This takes the Puma portfolio’s world record tally to two, following the record set for the fastest ever production road car which set its record on wheels made by Dymag.

Le Col is a leading British cycling brand founded by ex-professional cyclist Yanto Barker in 2011. Since 2018, Puma Funds have deployed £4.85 million to support Le Col’s growth plans.
