Mark Ledo collected a ninth career national title in June 2015 with a victory in the time trial. He was just coming off two-top-10 performances at World Cup stops in Switzerland and Italy.

He started cycling in April 2010, competing for his first time ever on a hand cycling race bike. A convert from athletics, Ledo competed at the Beijing 2008 Paralympic Games in both the 5000 metres and the marathon, finishing 28th and 37th respectively. Just four months after taking up road biking, Ledo earned a bronze medal in the road race and placed fifth in the time trial at the 2010 UCI Para-Cycling Road World Championships.
