Cascais, Portugal (June 11, 2021) — Canadian Para athletes struck gold for a second day in a row with two-time Paralympian Shelley Gautier earning her seventeenth world title and ninth T1 Individual Time Trial gold medal in Portugal.
“This race was my first international race in two years,” said Gautier. “The planning of where to cycle in the wind was tricky, as was staying small. My coaches Guillaume Plourde, Eric Van Den Eynde, Sébastien Travers and Cycling Canada helped me put in the hard work to make winning this World Championship possible. I am very proud of the result. I now have nine ITT rainbow jerseys and I am very proud of that.”
In other results, Marie-Ève Croteau (T2) placed 4th, Charles Moreau (H3) 4th, Matthew Kinnie (H2) 4th, Louis-Albert Corriveau Jolin (C3) 7th and Kara Douville (H4) 7th.
