Jaco wins Bronze at ParaCycling Track World Championships, Rio

Jaco raced at the Para-Cycling Track World Championships in Rio in March. Jaco rode in the C4 4K pursuit, 16 tough laps of the track. In his qualifying race, he rode a PB and incredibly broke the British Record. He qualified third fastest and returned for the final in the evening. 

He rode a breathtaking race around the track in the bronze medal ride off, falling behind with a few laps to go and giving everything he had in the very last lap to secure the bronze spot by a very fine margin.

Jaco says "It's truly amazing what you can find within yourself when you want something that much". He's extremely pleased with the result and incredibly happy to be bringing home a bronze medal after taking himself off the British Cycling programme early last year. He's trained extremely hard with the support of his ambassadors, LEA, Core Clinics and Thin Air Wellness. He is extremely grateful for their support. 

Keep posted on Jaco's Facebook page here for where he's racing next.
