Day Six - 12 September 2008

When you are racing on the road and your main rival has previously won stages of the Tour de France you are going to have a tough time. There was only 2 names in the frame for Gold in the Men's Individual Time Trial CP 3 on the road today; Darren Kenny and Javier Ochoa, the last two riders in the race.

Darren was the penultimate rider and completed the 24.8km in 37:38.42 a clear minute ahead of the nearest rival, Yong-Sik Jin and setting the pace for Ochoa.In a repeat of the outcome at Athens 2004 Ochoa pulled a time of 37:26.47 to win Gold with Darren taking Silver and Yong-Sik winning bronze.

Silver was the colour for Simon Richardson as well, with the double Gold Medal winning LC3 rider coming second to Laurent Thirionet of France.

Sarah Storey gained her second Gold of the games on the road with a nail biting finish in the Women's Individual Time Trial LC 1/LC 2/CP 4 beating Jennifer Schuble of USA.

All these names are familiar if you have followed the action in the Velodrome, but ParalympicsGB had fresh Muscle to bring to the road.

Rachel Morris took Gold in the Women's Individual Time Trial (HCA/HCB/HCC) and David Stone took Gold in the Mixed Time Trial (CP1/CP2).

With two scorching days left of the cycling programme ParalympicsGB has won 15 Gold and 3 Silver medals.
