Fachie, Toft and Collis-McCann among the medals at Road World Cup for Britain
Lora Fachie and Stephen Bate rounded off Great Britain’s fruitful final day of the UCI Para-Cycling Road World Cup in Canada in perfect fashion.
Fachie clinched the women’s B road race gold in the final race of the event with a time of 2:00.14, after Bate had managed a silver in the men’s B road race in a sprint finish, clocking a time of 2:23.51.
Katie Toft’s women’s C1 road race gold was joined by bronzes for Will Bjergfelt and Crystal Lane-Wright respectively in the C5 road races.
Craig Collis-McCann also took his place on the podium as he secured silver in the men’s T2.
Toft added another title to her growing collection with a time of 1:43.23.
Collis-McCann stopped the clock at 55:51 in his competition, edging out New Zealand’s Stephen Hill to second place after German rider Hans-Peter Durst powered to victory by three-and-a-half minutes. Fellow Brit David Stone managed fifth.
Lane-Wright went all guns blazing throughout her C5 road race to dash home in 1:37.04 – Anna Harkowska of Poland and Germany’s Kerstin Brachtendorf claiming gold and silver ahead of the British rider.
Bjergfelt followed on from his first World Cup gold in the time trial on Saturday to power to another medal, capping a fine individual performance from him.
His time of 2:04.25 was just short of the other podium finishers – Alistair Donohoe of Australia and Dorian Foulon of France.
Elsewhere in Britain’s colours, Megan Giglia just missed out on a medal as she came fourth in the women’s C3 road race, while Ben Watson was similarly edged out in the men’s C3.
