Evers wins cycling state title

LOOK out Rohan Dennis, here comes Craig Evers.

Grafton's Craig Evers has continued his outstanding 2015 by taking out the 2015 NSW Elite Mens Individual Time Trial in spectacular fashion.

The 25-year-old Grafton Cycle Club member, who races for Data #3 Symantec Racing Team, blitzed his nearest rivals by more than a minute and a half, completing the course at Breadalbane near Goulburn in the NSW southern highlands in 58 minutes 49 seconds. Seasoned pro rider Ben Dyball (1:01.21) and Ben Hill (1:00.33) third.

"I never thought I'd be a state champion but I had this one earmarked for a long time," Evers said.

"With the weeks ahead I'm feeling ready to rock and roll."

Coached by Italian based Yamba endurance mountain biker Morgan Pilley, it has been a career defining year for the time trial specialist since making his debut for a UCI Continental status team and briefly rubbing shoulders with Cadel Evans in the Australian Road Race Championships, including his first UCI level stage win in the New Zealand Cycle Classic and silver in the Oceania Elite Mens Time Trial.
