Stuart Jones took silver over the weekend at the UCI Para-Cycling Road World Championships in Emmen, The Netherlands adding to team Australia’s leading medal count.
Jones recorded an impressive time of 34:22.61 in the Tricycle 2 Time Trial less than 16 seconds behind first place Hans-Peter Durst from Germany.
It has been a stellar 2019 international season for Australian para-cyclists which began with a 17-medal haul at the 2019 UCI Para-cycling Track World Championships in March which saw them finish second overall.
On the road, the team claimed 29 medals across the three rounds of the 2019 UCI Para-Cycling Road World Cup season.
“We have had great success at these championships,” said Australian Cycling Team Para-cycling Technical Director Warren McDonald.
“Athletes, coaches and support staff have worked incredibly hard together as a team to produce personal best performances.
“The year ahead to Tokyo will be challenging in the planning and timing to repeat the success of both our Track and Road World Championships of this year.”
