jamesebdonlissWightlink-LCM Systems Cycle Race Team rider James Ebdon travelled to Liss in Hampshire for an …a3crg evening time trial last Wednesday.

Based on the A3, the course started on a slip road and turned southbound for 5 miles before turning left and going over a roundabout, then over the flyover before heading back for the remaining 5 miles.

With good conditions and a course that suited Ebdon’s riding style, he knew a fast time was possible. A slight tailwind for the outward leg meant Ebdon reached the turn in just over 9 minutes which is an average speed of nearly 32 miles per hour.

Coming back into the headwind he pushed hard and clocked a time of 20:56 for the 10 mile course. This took a further 47 seconds off his PB and gave him 3rd place on the night out of 80 starters.
