Men’s 1000m time trial

Reigning tandem world champions Neil Fachie and Matt Rotherham upheld their title in style, shaving 1.557 seconds off their third place qualifying time to claim back-to-back world titles in the men’s tandem kilo.

On claiming his remarkable 15 th world title, Fachie said: “It’s still as sweet at the first to be honest, I’m quite happy to keep racking them up. I just love racing, it’s just that adrenaline rush of being out there on the big scene and if you can still deliver why not keep doing it?” James Ball repeated his 2020 silver medal result, this time with new kid on the block, pilot Steffan Lloyd. After qualifying fastest in 1:01.478, the duo delivered an even faster time of 1:00.184 in the final. But it wasn’t quite enough to beat their fellow Brits and they add a silver medal to yesterday’s team sprint gold.

After a fourth place finish in 2020, Sam Ruddock was back with something to prove and prove he did, taking home a rainbow jersey. Ruddock qualified fastest and managed to shave off seven tenths of a second in the final to take the men’s C1 gold. At his first ever para-cycling world championships, Ryan Taylor made it into the men’s C2 final qualifying in sixth place. He later delivered a PB ride of 1:15.200, finishing the day in sixth place. This result puts him sixth in the current minimum standings, ahead of tomorrow’s individual pursuit. Women’s C1 500m TT
