Sarah Cooper has once again set the women's solo course record for standard bikes at Bike Sebring 24 Hours. In this race to complete as many laps as possible in 24 hours, she rode 494.5 miles with a time of 23h 59m 32s. This gave her the women's win and second place overall. The men's winner had the same number of miles but a finish time just nine minutes quicker.
