Dame Sarah Storey claimed the 21st world title of her illustrious cycling career with a dominant performance in this morning’s time-trial.

Storey took a comfortable victory, finishing over two minutes ahead of second placed Polish rider Anna Harkowska.

The Disley star will attempt to collect her second rainbow jersey of the championships when she returns for the road race on Saturday.

Storey was delighted to win yet another world title.

“It’s a massive relief to win. It was great to do three laps. Most of the para-cycling time-trials I’ve done have only been two laps so to get a 30 minute TT was really good.

“The year before Rio, to be putting time into your competitors is always good. That obviously shows that the training and preparation has gone well. “Hopefully I’ll be able to retain this title in Rio next year.”
