Result: Neil Fachie sets world record to win gold in individual B 1km time trial

Neil Fachie wins gold in the 1km time trial, smashing the world record in the process, although it was disappointment for fellow Briton Anthony Kappes.

Neil Fachie has won gold in the men's individual B 1km time trial, smashing the world record, while Anthony Kappes did not finish in controversial circumstances.

Fachie, with his pilot Barney Storey, finished with a time of 1:01.351 to guarantee himself a medal with only Kappes left to ride.

Kappes had a problem with his chain at the start, and unlike Jody Cundy yesterday, he was given a second start.

On his second attempt the same problem occurred and, as there is a two-start rule in cycling, they were disqualified.

Australia's Kieran Modra set the early pace, clocking 1:03.120 after going out first.

It took seven riders before his time was beaten, when Spaniard Jose Enrique Porto Lareo set a Paralympic record in 1:02.707.

Dutch rider Rinne Oost rode 1:03.52 with his pilot Patrick Bos before Fachie set the world record.
