Red hot racing at Para-Cycling Track Nationals

The scorching temperature inside the Adelaide Super-drome was matched with red hot racing at the 2016 Cycling Australia Para-Cycling Track National Championships last week.

Alistair Donohoe successfully defended his title in the men’s C5 4km individual pursuit, edging out reigning world champion and fellow VIS athlete Michael Gallagher in the final.

Good friends off the track, the pair has developed a great rivalry on the boards posting another enthralling battle over the 16 laps. Donohoe took gold in the time of 4:27.19, six seconds ahead of seven-time world champion Gallagher (4:33.18).

It has been a stellar year for Donohoe with the VIS athlete defending his Para-cycling road world title and claiming a second rainbow jersey in the scratch race at the Track World Championships. He also claimed silver in the road time trial and track individual pursuit and 1km time trial and four World Cup gold medals.

In the women’s C4 3km final, Hannah Macdougall won silver in a time of 4:09.62.
