Jody Cundy emerged triumphant at the British Cycling National Track Championships ... and he set a British record in the process.

Cundy took the British title in the para-cycling mixed C1-C5 200-metre time trial, setting a C4 record with a stunning time of 10.531 (10.380 factored), with silver going to Jon-Allan Butterworth and bronze for Lauren Booth.

He said: “It’s the best 200m I’ve done ever. I’ve set some really good times in training, it’s really satisfying to go that fast.

“It’s been such a long while since I’ve had a national jersey, it’s quite nice to pull it back on again. To stand on the podium and receive the jersey, it’s pretty special.”
