Due to illness, Jasmijn Muller is forced to abandon her Land's End to John O'Groats record attempt

After embarking only yesterday on her Land's End to John O'Groats record attempt, Jasmijn Muller has had to abandon due to illness. 

After falling increasingly ill over the night, Muller and her crew consulted on her health. Muller then succumb to her illness deciding to stop at Chorley, Lancashire. 

Although expected to make a quick recovery, Muller will be unable to return to her record attempt. She is currently being looked after by the on-board paramedic and her husband Chris. 

Attempting to break Lynne Taylor's 2002 record, Muller was looking to ride from Land's End to John O'Groats  in under 52 hours with a further goal of also being the fastest woman to cover 1,000 miles in less than 64 hours. 

This was not the first ultra-endurance event that Muller had tackled, having been the fastest woman to complete the London-Edinburgh-London audax earlier this year. Additionally, Muller is the current national 24-hour time trial champion. 

In a statement via her press team, Muller wanted to recognise the support she had received in the run up to this attempt.

'Jasmijn and the team are very grateful for the huge amount of support this LEJOG record attempt has received from people up and down the country, both online and at the side of the road.'
