Colin Lynch and Enda Smyth broke records on the final day of the UCI Paracycling Track World Championships in Aguascalientes, Mexico.
Racing in the 1km Time Trial, Lynch finished the race against the clock in seventh position, with a PB of 1.18.142. And team mate Enda Smyth knocked three seconds off the previous national record, in a time of 1.10.936 to finish 12th.
Both riders concluded what was a successful World Championship campaign for the Irish team, where Lynch won silver in the 3km Pursuit on Saturday night.
Speaking about Smyth’s national record, Paracycling coach Neill Delahaye said: “Enda had an exceptional ride this afternoon in the Kilo TT.
“He delivered a great performance setting a blistering PB, taking almost three seconds off his previous best, setting the new national record with a time of 1.10.936.
“Colin also got a new national record in his kilo, a great performance after his phenomenal ride in the Pursuit last night, where he won silver.”
