Fenland paralympian Jody Cundy confident of world championship success following practice

PARALYMPIC champion Jody Cundy is confident of a strong weekend at the world championships after practice sessions on the track in Italy.

Cundy, from Walpole St Andrew, has had three sessions at the Montichiari velodrome, the scene of this weekend’s UCI Para-Cycling Track World Championships.

“Each one of them has been more and more encouraging,” said Cundy, 32. “The track feels fast and my leg feels good, I just hope that feeling lasts for the next three days as I have a lot of racing to do between now and Sunday evening.”

Cundy will first compete in the 4km pursuit. It is the first time he will compete in the discipline and said it will be an “interesting test”.

Following the pursuit, Cundy will aim to retain the 1km time trial (known as the kilo) and the men’s team sprint.
