Double Paralympic champion in Handcycling, Mark Rohan, has demonstrated the speed that made him dominant in the Paralympic Games by romping home in first place in the Time Trial at the World Cup in Segovia, Spain.

Rohan won silver in this category in the first World Cup of the year last week in Italy but went one better in Segovia today.

Earlier today Colin Lynch, who also won the silver medal in the Time Trial in the first World Cup last weekend, also went one better, beating Spanish Rider Eckhard Tio by two seconds in the TT today.

And the new female pairing of Katie-George Dunlevy and Anne Dalton impressed the field, posting a fine time to finish in the bronze medal postion in the Time Trial. This is their second competitive outing together.

Speaking in Spain, new Paracycling Coach Neill Delahaye said “This is a very encouraging result for Katie-George and Anne, especially considering their first race together was at the World Cup in Italy last weekend. They performed superbly in the 30 degree heat, on a breezy, but fast, course.”
