Last week Manchester Velodrome hosted the BT Paralympic World Cup Track Cycling events, previously known as the Visa Paralympics, the change of sponsor brought a few changes to event.
Previous events had been held at the begining of May rather than the end and this year saw the majority of riders competing in mixed classification events without any time adjustment based on classification.
Wednesday 20th May
3km Pursuit Qualifications (LC3/LC4/CP3/CP4)
The qualification was a close race with Japan's Ishii Masashi (CP4), in the end less than an eighth of a second between them. The final result meant that Darren and Ishii would be racing for Gold / Silver on Thursday with team mate Rik Waddon (CP3) racing for Bronze against Jiri Bouska (CP4) of the Czech Republic.

1km Time Trial (LC3/LC4/CP3)
The 1km time trial really showed the UK's current dominance of Para-Cycling, with Darren taking Gold, Rik Waddon Silver and Simon Richardson Bronze with almost 6 seconds between Gold and Bronze.
3km Pursuit Final (LC3/LC4/CP3/CP4)
The final gave Darren his second Gold of the day on the track. The eighth of a second difference in the qualification opening up to over 3 seconds in the final. In a tough race Jiri beat Rik to take Bronze.
Overall it was a good day on the track for Team GB with Gold for Jody Cundy (LC2), Sarah Storey (LC1), Simon Jackson and pilot Barney Storey (B/VI) and Aileen McGlynn with new pilot Vicky Begg (B/VI).

To anyone that had seen the Paralympics the team was familiar; Darren Kenny, Jody Cundy and Mark Bristow. The team that took Gold in the Beijing Paralympics won Gold in Manchester almost 2 seconds ahead of the Czech Republic.
The final day saw more of Team GB's skill on the track with Jody Cundy setting a new World Record in the 200m flying start. Gold was also on the shoulders of Barney Storey/Simon Jackson, Aileen McGlynn/Vicky Begg and Storey Sarah.
