Golden glory for Cambridge cyclist

Louis Rolfe had a medal-laden weekend at the Manchester Para-Cycling International at the HSBC UK National Cycling Centre.

The Cambridge-based cyclist made a great start to the three-day event by earning a bronze medal in the C1-3 1km time trial in 1min 13.409sec, with Spain’s Eduardo Santas Asensio taking gold and Belgium’s Kris Bosmans claiming silver.

Rolfe’s first golden moment came on day two as he won the men’s C2 final against promising newcomer Matthew Robertson.

On the final night, Rolfe rekindled his Rio Paralympics gold-medal winning partnership with Jon-Allan Butterworth and Jody Cundy in the team sprint.

In their first race since their triumph in Brazil, they qualified fastest in the morning to book their place in the final and a time of 50.409 saw them seal a comfortable victory.
