Videos and more from the 2015 Para-cycling Track World Championships

We were so lucky this year, we had the entire final session from the 2015 Para-cycling Track Worlds streamed for us….

…but there’s a lot more that came out.  Read on for photos, videos and results

Here’s Day 1 & Day 2 from the Dutch team’s perspective

All the results are on the UCI website, photos are on the Apeldoorn competition website, and I’ve found some reports from the different days.  I’m posting the women’s videos, but you can see all the videos of the men’s races over on this great youtube.

Day 1
