Double Podium for Canadian Para and Mountain Bike Athletes on The World Stage
Cascais, Portugal (June 12, 2021) — Canada is on a winning streak at the UCI Para-cycling Road World Championships in Cascais, Portugal, with Marie-Claude Molnar securing her second world title of the week in the women’s C4 road race.
“Today’s road race was awesome, even though it was probably one of the most difficult races I’ve ever done,” said Molnar. “I’m proud of the fact that I was able to stick with the C5s for pretty much the entire race. I started racing in 2009, and I’ve been dreaming about being World Champion since I started. Now, the dream has become a reality and I’m super proud of my performance.”
In Leogang, Austria, first-year Junior Jackson Goldstone won silver in the Junior men’s Downhill event at the UCI Mountain Bike World Cup after also qualifying second on Friday. This was the Squamish native’s world cup debut.
Mountain bike cross-country races for U23 and Elite athletes take place tomorrow, with results and livestream available here. The Para Road World Championships will conclude tomorrow with road races for T and H categories. Full results can be found here.
