Debut UCI World Championships for two TR3evo riders

Debut UCI World Championships for two TR3evo riders

The UCI Cycling World Championships are a special time for any cyclist, but especially those making their debut on the biggest stage.

This year's Worlds were one of the most watched cycling events ever, with broadcast figures from the first four days of action showing record numbers of viewers tuning in at home and abroad. 

The Track and Para-cycling Track competitions, held jointly for the first time, had an average of 500,000 viewers tuning in to watch the competition at the Sir Chris Hoy velodrome.

Handsling had two riders lining on the boards to make their first ever Worlds appearance.

Team GB C2 para-cyclist Millie Cass finished 7th in the Individual Pursuit, 10th in the 200m, 12th in the 500m and 6th in the scratch race. These are strong results for someone who only found out they'd be racing four weeks ago and had little time to prepare. Millie rides a size 48 TR3evo in Silver Bullet.

She said: "I've had such an amazing time representing Team GB on the track. So much learnt and it's been great fun. The crowd was immense and there's much more to come."

Adam Krenek

22-year-old Adam Krenek has had a strong season on his TR3evo in Cobalt Blue. His World Championships debut in the Points Race was a massive step up, yet he finished a very credible 15th in an exceptionally strong field, showing he has much to offer for the future.

He said: "It was definitely one of the hardest days on my bike ever. I'm satisfied with my performance. I wanted to race active and have good legs. 15th is about where I am right now and I'll work hard to improve in the future. Overall, I was really honoured to compete in Worlds for the first time in my life. I learned a lot and can't wait for more opportunities."

Speaking about his TR3evo, he said: "The bike is great. I can't imagine doing that race with anything else."
