EMMEN, Netherlands — Not far from home, German cyclists won several events at the UCI Para Cycling Road World Cup event in Emmen this weekend.

World No. 1 German Hans-Peter Durst continued his stellar season winning the men’s T3, but it was a close fight as American Ryan Boyle finished just six seconds behind. The podium was rounded out by Spaniard Joan Reinoso Figuerola..

There were two German medalists in the men’s C1 as World No. 3 Michael Teuber claimed gold in 22:48:21. Team mate Erich Winkler was over a minute behind with American William Lister in between the pair.

The home crowd had something to cheer in the Men’s Tandem Time Trial race claimed by Vincent Ter Schure, in something of a shock the world No. 13 managed an upset.  The podium was completed by Spaniard Ignacio Avila Rodriquez who was 45 seconds back and Polish cyclist Przemyslaw Wegner just over a minute behind.

Spaniard Gonzalo Garcia Abella claimed the men’s T1 with ease finishing over a minute clear of his nearest rivals. Outside of the top athletes in the world, without a ranking, Abella stunned the field, with world No. 4 David Geslot forced to settle for third.

Canadian World No. 1 Shelley Gautier won yet another event as she claimed the women’s T1 in 37:41.31 beating out Russian Yulia Sibagatova of Russia. The T2 version of the event was won by world No. 2 Australian Carol Cook in 29:07.70 with two Americas completing the podium one second apart with Jill Walsh second and Monica Sereda third.
