Late February and early March always see the start of the time trial season and as members of the NLTTA (North Lancashire Time Trial Association) the Inspire VCUK team took to the line with Lewis Hartley as our sole rider in the combined clubs 10mile event.
The course was the L105 in Brock and is a loop that ecompasses both standard straight road riding with technical twisty turny Lancashire lanes, often with long stretches exposed to the cross and head winds that anyone who rides around here will be familiar with.
Often the best way to avoid the winds is to stay aero and tuck up to the hedges as Lewis clearly shows here:
There were 127 finishers out of a starting list of 147 riders and we are delighted that Lewis finished a very credible 36th:
