The road race for the Heart and Lung Transplant Championship proved very fruitful for the GB team resulting in 2 golds and 2 silver. Debbie Burdon claimed silver in the 35-44 age group, and Louise McLellan went one better in the 45-54 group winning gold. In the men’s race long time team member Simon Ripley added to his extensive EHLTC medal haul winning gold in the 18-34 category. Steve Donaldson won silver in the 45-54 age group in his first outing for GB. Steve rode an incredible race being beaten to silver and 3rd scratch in a tactical and exciting sprint finish. Paul Woodward finished 7th in the 45-54 category.
The GB cycling team once again finished top of the medal table, just ahead of Netherlands. This was an excellent result for a smaller, less experienced squad. This overall result bodes very well for the squad in the run up to the 2017 World Transplant Games in Malaga.
