The paracycling world championships in Carson, California concluded on Sunday February 12, with the blue-riband track event proving even more successful than organisers had initially hoped.

Healthy crowds responded positively to the open turnstiles at the four-day event, with the racing itself highly competitive and a treat for the spectators, particularly with the London Paralympic Games just months away.

Great Britain topped the medal tally with eight gold medals, seven silver and two bronze.
