Dame Sarah Storey was delighted to secure her 22nd world title at the UCI Para-Cycling Road World Championships in Switzerland.
Disley cyclist Storey claimed number 21 in Thursday’s time trial and made it a memorable week with a second gold on Saturday in the C5 road race.
She attacked on the first lap on the road and opened up a comfortable lead over her rivals, going on to finish well clear of Anna Harkowska.
It was the same one-two as the time trial two days earlier as Storey finished in front of Harkowska once more.
And Storey said: “I feel really good. It was one of those races that could easily have been a totally different race.
“After about a kilometre, I could feel riders on my back wheel and there was a clatter of carbon behind me.
“I decided that’s it I’m not sitting in the bunch anymore. I just stretched it out and just kept pushing and looked round and thought this is a decent gap, so I pressed on and the gap quickly opened up.”
Storey won four golds - 500m TT, pursuit, road race, time trial - at the 2012 Paralympic Games in London, matching Dame Tanni Grey-Thompson’s record of 11 Paralympic golds, and is eager to claim more.
She added: “The worlds before a Paralympic year, in any sport, are the hardest because everyone wants to take the psychological advantage into the Paralympic year.
“Next year will be my third Paralympics as a cyclist, and you need to take those psychological scalps. The next 12 months people really begin to ramp it up so it’s a really good indication of where you are and what you need to do.”
