BALLINAHOWN’s Mark Rohan has won a silver medal in the time-trial event at the UCI Paracycling World Championships in Canada.
The defending Paralympic and world champion clocked a personal best time behind Italy’s Luca Mazzone in the H1 handcycling category in Baie-Comeau. William Groulx from the USA took bronze.
Speaking afterwards to RTE, the former Marist College, Athlone student said: “Everything went to plan. I came out a week early this year, and that really paid off. I rode according to the plan, even above it, as I got a PB out there.
I’m happy with the performance, and very proud to have an Irish jersey on the podium.”
Mark will no re-focus his efforts on the Road Race event which takes place tomorrow (Saturday).
