Doubles All Round

Rachel Morris, Sarah Storey and David Stone have each scored double-Golds helping GB take a flying start at the first round of the 2011 UCI Para-cycling World Cup in Sydney, Australia (May 4-6). With a total tally of ten medals the British women dominated by bagging eight of them. The event, which this year saw more than 130 athletes from 18 countries battling it out, was only introduced last year by the UCI in order to bring the discipline in line with other cycling disciplines. But with the 2012 Games fast approaching far more than mere medals were at stake with everyone fighting for those valuable UCI Paralympic qualifying points. The World Cupís next round will take place in Segovia, Spain (June 10-12) before moving on to Baie-Comeau, Canada from July 8-10.
