UCI Para-Cycling Road World Cup, Segovia, Spain

Great Britain got off to a winning start on day 1 of the UCI World cup event in Spain. Tandem pairing Lora Turnham and pilot Fiona Duncan won gold in the Women’s B time trial. David Stone took the Men’s T2 test and Mark Colbourne & Karen Darke added silver in the C5 and Women's H2 races. Turnham & Duncan clocked 27.47 for the rolling 21KM course, 3 secs quicker than the Irish pair, Catherine Walsh & Francine Meehan. Robbie Weldon & Lynn Bessette took the bronze for Canada with 28.01. Both British girls agreed it was “very hot and windy” but they had a race strategy and they “stuck to it.” The G B team went into the event with tired legs from an intensive block of training, so there is definitely more to come. Day’s 2 & 3 of the Segovia World Cup will feature the road racing with Brits in action on both days. More to come……..
