Media from the 2016 Para-cycling Track Championships

Last week it was the 2016 Paracycling Track World Championships in Montechiari, and there were do many moments of great racing, making me really look forward to the Rio Paralympics (although I’ll always mourn the fact we won’t have women’s tandem sprint there because just wow!).  There was about an hour and a half of TV/streams on RAI Sport 2 every night, with some sessions streamed live, and while that hasn’t turned up online, there was more media from the racing – race reports, photo, and a little bit of video.  If you find more you liked, please do share, in the comments here, or on twitter, and I’ll edit it all in.

Lets start with the results – they’re all here on the they’re all here on the UCI results page.  And here’s a gallery of photos on the UCI website.  This post focuses on the women, but the same links will include things about the men- and check out Jody Cundy’s YouTube for videos of his races.  There’s a nice video from the UCI about the 500m/Kilo, with Jamie Whitmore, Joe Berenyi and Alistair Donohoe:

I just text my friend to tell him the results and it just hit me…I am World Champion and World Record holder in cycling now as well as athletics. Yesterday, I must have been the most miserable person to receive their medal and truth be told, I didn't want to get on the podium. With the dramas of classification, I just felt the hard work me and the team behind me had put in to take me from being a complete novice to World champion in 10 months, had kinda just been thrown back in our face. But regardless of that, I went out and did a pretty awesome time (even with a few mistakes) and I managed to compose myself and put all the rubbish to one side and do what I had to do on race day. I guess I'm proud of myself for that, and I'm grateful for the team behind me, as well as my supporters. It's funny that even though my performances are good, nothing ever goes to plan. But I thank God for being by me, even through the bumpy stages and presenting me with such amazing opportunities! If you'd have said to me 2 years ago, I would be world champion and WR holder in athletics and cycling in Paralympic/Olympic year, I would have laughed. If you'd have said to me 2 days ago, I'd be world champion and WR holder as a C4 I would have laughed. But here I am, determined as ever to continue my journey and inspire others (no matter how much I hate being called inspirational) #keepkadsmyelin #worldchampionships #worldchampion #worldrecord #cycling #2sportathlete #athletics #tracknation #fitfam #ms #mswarrior #strongerthanms #inspire
