Hannah Dines is seconds from first World Championship medal

Hannah Dines was just seconds away from her first ever UCI Para Cycling World Championship medal as she finished fourth for the second time in Maniago.

Dines missed out on the podium by just 22 seconds in the women’s T2 road race in Italy, having also come fourth in the time trial earlier this week.

The British cyclist was pipped to bronze by Germany’s Jana Majunke, with the United States’ Jill Walsh taking gold and Carol Cooke, of Australia, silver.

“What an incredible race.I brought the fight to the World Championships road race,” said Dines.


Gap on final big hill and I gave everything to close it. Nearly, nearly caught bronze.

Elsewhere on Saturday, Craig Collis-McCann narrowly missed out on his second medal of the Championships in blistering heat on the continent.

Already with a silver medal to his name after the T2 time trials, Collis-McCann finished sixth in the men’s T2 40.8km road race – just over three minutes behind winner Ryan Boyle.

In the morning, Paralympic time trial H1-3 gold medallist Karen Darke finished eighth in the women’s H3 race as Italy’s Francesca Porcellato completed a home championships double.

The World Championships conclude on Sunday with the men’s and women’s C class races, the tandems and the team relay.
