Great Britain cycling ace Jody Cundy won his seventh straight kilo title at the UCI Track Paracycling World Championships in the Netherlands.

The former Walpole St Andrew star is part of the Great Britain team which topped the medals table at the Championships which started on Thursday in Apeldoorn.

It is the 13th world title of the 36-year-old’s career.

“Today did take a lot more out of me than usual, but after what happened I’m really pleased that I could get the medal,” he said.

Louis Rolfe, Cundy and Jaco van Gass narrowly missed a medal ride in the team sprint, placing fifth.

The British team finished top of the medal standings by virtue of their seven golds. The 36-year-old set a new sea-level best in January after recovering from illness.
