Portugal closes the adapted cycling World Cup with two medals
Writing with Lusa
Both medals were won by Luís Costa.
Portugal closed with two medals, won by Luís Costa, the stage of the World Cup adapted from Quebec, after Bernardo Vieira had been sixth in the long-distance race, and Telmo Pinão had abandoned.
In Canada, on the last day of the race, Bernardo Vieira finished the 61.6 kilometers of the C1 class long-distance race in sixth and penultimate position, 13.31 minutes from the winner, the Spaniard Ricardo Tem Argiles.
In the C2 class, the Paralympic Telmo Pinão had a breakdown while he was in the lead group of the long-distance event and was forced to retire.
Portugal leaves the competition, marked by the loss of equipment of some runners during the aerial, with two trips, both achieved by cyclist Luís in the H5 class: silver against the clock, and gold in the long-distance race.
The National Team travels to Baie-Comeau, also in the state of Quebec, where the World Cups will take place, between 11 and 14 August.
