First reports back from Fiona are that she and Rhiannon Henry made a solid start despite falling off their bike immediately before the Prologue TT! They finished 4th which is no at all bad, since this was Rhiannon's first ever bike race of any type.

Lora Turnham and Corrine Hall won the Prologue and also managed to hold strong position in the 1st Road Race stage, finishing 2nd to maintain overall lead on the GC going into day 2. Fiona and Rhiannon's luck was not the best, having had a puncture and a very long wait for a change of wheel to be up and running they managed to limit the damage and finished 6th.

A successful day for Team GB and a baptism of fire for their newest recruit, Rhiannon, who has accounted herself very well.

A great Tour of Belgium for Team GB Paracycling Team, with Lora Turnham and Corrine Hall winning the overall and Fiona Duncan and Rhiannon Henry riding strongly in support of the other pairing to ensure overall victory against a heavy onslaught from the Dutch and Polish teams tandems.
