Jody Cundy retained his MC4 kilo title at the UCI Para-cycling track world championships to win his twelfth gold medal in a row this week.
Cundy won in a time of 1:05:087 on the first day of action yesterday (January 30), beating silver medalist Jozef Metelka of Slovakia by under a second in Canada, who also finished runner-up in last year's event.
The Wisbech paralympian was also the first Briton to top the podium during the afternoon session on a fruitful opening day for Great Britain, as he aims to compete in this year's Paralympic Games in Tokyo.
"The time really doesn't reflect anywhere near the form I'm in, which is kind of disappointing," Cundy, 41, said.
"I know that I didn't perform at my best, which is disappointing as that's all you train for - to do your best on race day.
