McCrystal and Dunlevy win back-to-back titles at World Championships in Italy

Eve McCrystal and Katie-George Dunlevy successfully defended their Women's B Tandem Road Race title at the UCI Para-Cycling World Championships in Maniago, Italy, on Sunday.

The pair finished the 81.6km course in two hours and 11 seconds to ensure they completed the double having defended their Time Trial crown on Friday.

British pair Lora Fachie and Corrine Hall took second in both events.

Today's success means the Cycling Ireland pair have done the almost unthinkable and won both titles in back-to-back years following success in South Africa in 2017.

McCrystal, a native of Jenkinstown, and Dunlevy have enjoyed wonderful success as a duo, including winning medals at the 2016 Paralympics in Brazil.
