In an action packed second day at the Manchester Para-Cycling International, the Great Britain Cycling Team continued to increase their medal tally in Manchester.

With qualification this morning seeding riders into gold and bronze medal races, the British riders returned this evening to complete the job.

Fin Graham continued his fine form, including a gold medal in yesterday's C3 1km TT, in securing another gold this evening in the Individual Pursuit. Graham looked strong out of the gate and comfortably held on despite a late surge to secure gold in a time of 3:34.436.

Elsewhere in the C1-3 Pursuit, 19-year old Matthew Robertson had to settle for second in a nail biter in the C2 class, whilst Ben Watson looked strong in winning his bronze medal ride - joining Fin Graham on the podium.

World Champions Lora Fachie and Corinne Hall looked a class apart in catching their opposition with 1km to go in the Women's B 3000m Pursuit, whilst fellow tandem World Champions Steve Bate and Adam Duggleby looked equally poised in victory in the men's event in a time of 4:14.232.


In the women's 500m TT's, Kadeena Cox claimed gold to build on her impressive form from the Track World Cup in London in a time of 36.93, whilst Paralympic Champion Megan Giglia took second place in the C3 class.

Finally Great Britain once again dominated the podium in the C5 pursuit, with Jon Gildea and Will Bjergfelt taking gold and bronze respectively, backing their placing from the qualification rides earlier this morning.

The action continues tomorrow at the National Cycling Centre with more British medal potential across the board.
