They enjoyed success in the form of two world titles and two world records. In the kilo, they became the first tandem pair ever to break the one-minute mark, posting a blistering time of 59.460.

In the sprint, they set the world record in the qualifying flying 200m with a time of 9.711 seconds finally beating their Australian opponents 2-0 to take the victory and the world title.

In 2015, Pete and Neil retained their kilo and sprint titles at the UCI Para-cycling Track World Championships in Apeldoorn.
