Track World Cup

Many congratulations to Charlie and Harry Tanfield on their performances at the Track World Cup held this weekend at Minsk in Belarus.

On Saturday, Charlie outclassed the opposition in the 4 km Individual Pursuit to win the gold medal in a time of 4 mins 12.253 secs. To put this time in context it’s less than two seconds outside Jack Bobridge’s world record and the only Brit to have gone faster is Chris Boardman.

On Sunday Charlie was joined by brother Harry, Dan Bigham and Jonny Wale riding as Team KGF in the Team Pursuit where they came away with the gold medal beating a Russian trade team in the final.

There’s more reporting on the British Cycling Website here and here.

What next for the Tanfields?
