Britain’s cyclists on top of the world in France


Britain added a further four gold and two bronze medals in the road cycling competitions over the weekend to add to the haul of nine golds, one silver and one bronze they had won on the track earlier in the competition.

This result sees the squad improve on performances at last year’s championships, where Britain finished second in the medal table.

Among the medallists was newcomer Rachel Morris, who took gold in both the time trial and road race in the women’s B category hand-cycle.

Other top performances included newcomers Melanie Easter and Rebecca Rimmington, who just missed out on the podium in both the time trial and road race in the B and V tandem class, with two fourth place finishes.

These performances will put Britain in a good position ahead of next year’s Paralympic Games as the championships were an opportunity for Britain’s cyclists to score vital ranking points to qualify places for the Games.

The UCI Para-Cycling World Championships take place in Bordeaux, France from August 19 to 27. Britain have entered the largest ever squad in the championships in order to try and qualify as many places as possible for the Beijing.

The British Female squad for the championships is: Jody Cundy, Sarah Bailey, Aileen McGlynn and Ellen Hunter, Melanie Easter and Rebecca Rimmington, Rachel Morris.
