Paralympic champion David Stone added to Great Britain’s medal tally winning silver in the T2 road race on Sunday 27 July at the UCI Para-cycling Road World Cup in Segovia, Spain.
Stone was pitted against his key rival, Hans-Peter Durst of Germany over three laps of the eight-kilometre Cantimpalos course and was narrowly pipped to the win in the final sprint, Stone taking silver, four seconds ahead of Giorgio Farroni of Italy.
The result followed Stone’s bronze medal in the T2 time-trial on Friday, and meant that the rider had done enough to secure the overall world cup title.
Britain’s Simon Price took an impressive sixth place in the C2 road race, finishing in a group of five riders, 48 seconds behind winner Israel Hilario Rimas of Peru.
Britain had two men in the C3 road race, with Shaun McKeown best placed in 19th, ahead of Rik Waddon in 22nd, the latter dropped from the bunch with a mechanical, while John Gildea took 19th in the C5 road race.
Stone’s silver medal added to Great Britain’s impressive results in the first two days, which saw the tandem pairing of Lora Turnham and Corrine Hall strike gold in the time-trial and road race. Karen Darke also took two medals, with bronze in the H3 time-trial and road race.
