Storey wins Para-cycling world gold

Dame Sarah Storey claimed the 16th world title of her cycling career with gold in the time trial at the Para-cycling Road World Championships.

The Briton finished more than two minutes ahead of Poland’s Anna Harkowska in Nottwil, Switzerland.

Storey can win a 17th title when she rides in Saturday’s road race.

“It’s a massive relief to win,” said the 37-year-old, who is targeting further Paralympic success at next year’s Games in Rio de Janeiro.
