The Irish Para-cycling team have continued their winning ways with silver and bronze medals in the women’s tandem road race at the Ostend World Cup on Sunday, May 7th.
After Katie-George Dunlevy and Linda Kelly bagged a gold medal in the highlight results from the time trial events earlier in the World Cup, the medals kept coming as more strong performances followed in the weekend’s road race events.
In the women’s tandem road race, both pairings of Jospehine Healion and Eve McCrystal and Dunlevy and Kelly were on the podium after an impressive display.
Healion and McCrystal took silver with their best result in a World Cup event as a duo while Dunlevy and Kelly continued their remarkable consistency that’s seen them podium every event they’ve competed together in at World Cup level this year.
McCrystal said: "It was a great day for both Irish pairings to be up the road and to come home with silver and bronze."
The Irish national team will be back in World Cup action in Huntsville-Alabama from May 26th to 29th.
