Marie-Claude Molnar World Champion In Women’s C4 Itt At Para Road World Championships In Portugal
Cascais, Portugal (June 10, 2021) — Two-time Paralympian Marie-Claude Molnar can now call herself a Road World Champion for the first time in her career. Despite heavy winds and a very technical course, she was able to clinch the rainbow jersey in the women’s C4 Individual Time Trial on the second day of the UCI Para-cycling Road World Championships with a time of 41:49.47.
“The race was great. It was tricky because of the wind but overall, I felt great the entire race,” said Molnar. “I really made sure to focus on the present and on my cadence. I really made sure to make every decision at the right moment. I’m really proud of the result for sure. I’ve been waiting for this for a very long time and the support from Cycling Canada has been making a big difference and I truly want to thank everybody.”
This marks the first international road race for Canadian Para athletes in nearly two years, with races taking place until Sunday, June 13 for all categories. For full race information and results, click here
