The German, who has now retired from the sport, easily beat the previous mark but at a velodrome in Switzerland, Brandle has eclipsed his effort by 0.74 kilometres.
The 43-year-old is quoted as saying: "Now I feel really great, but during the race it was so hard.
"I knew after 30 minutes that I was going to succeed. The first minutes were easy and then I wanted to go a lot faster. Halfway through, things became more complicated and I started to feel pain."
