Jason Niblett wins silver at UCE Para-Cycling World Championships 2014

FORMER Horsham cyclist Jason Niblett has enjoyed more success on the track, pairing with Kieran Modra for two silver medals at the 2014 UCE Para-Cycling World Championships in Mexico.

Niblett, currently a coach at the South Australian Sports Institute, was pilot to Modra, a seven-time Paralympian.

The pair set world-record times in the Men’s B one-kilometre time trial on Friday and Men’s 200m sprint on Sunday, but it was not enough to take home a gold medal.

The pair set a world record time of 9.87 seconds in the sprint, while posting a world record time of one minute and 0.48 seconds in the time trial.

However, Niblett and Modra were pipped for gold in both events by Great Britain’s Neil Fachie and Peter Mitchell, who set new world records in the process.

Australia’s 17-member team finished as the top overall nation from the 30 nations competing in Aguascalientes, finishing with 17 medals, including five rainbow jerseys.
