British Disabled team medal in New Zealand – Mills leads way with second

Heather Mills took second place in the opening round of the IPC World Cup race in Coronet Peak, New Zealand. The new combination of Jade Etherington and Caroline Powell, an ex England Team racer, took the bronze in the partially sighted classification. There were also great results with 4th for Ben Sneesby,  5th Tim Farr and 8th for James Whitley.

John Clark, coach to Heather Mills, was delighted with the set of results, commenting on Facebook: “Good stuff, lots more to come for sure, great work everyone!”

The Winter Games are the first time that the adaptive racers have raced as part of a mainstream event.
