John Archibald – “a four minute (Pursuit) effort is something I think I could be good at”

-

Season 2016 saw John Archibald record times of 50:07, 50:04 and 50:03 for 25 mile time trials – so a big goal for him was to dip below the magic 50 minutes.

On Sunday past on the rolling dual carriageway between Brechin and Forfar he didn’t just dip inside the 30 miles per hour standard, he left it way behind with a stunning 47 minutes and 57 seconds ride.

In the process he took 46 seconds off Graeme Obree’s 1994 record of 48:43; we just had to, ‘have a word.’
