Ireland's Paralympic champion Eoghan Clifford was victorious at the International Cycling Union (UCI) Para-cycling Road World Cup in Emmen today.

The 36-year-old, who won C3 road time trial gold and individual pursuit bronze at Rio 2016, crossed the line in the men's C3 road race with a time of 1 hour 41min and 25sec.

Belgium secured both the silver and bronze medals with Diederick Schelfhout finishing 9sec behind Clifford in second and Kris Bosmans crossing the line 52sec adrift in third.

Reigning world champion Pierre Senska claimed men's C1 road race gold in 1:45.29.

The German, who was victorious at the 2015 UCI Para-cycling Road World Championships in Nottwil in Switzerland, crossed the line first as he prepares to defend his title at the 2017 edition of the event in the South African city of Pietermaritzburg in August and September.

He narrowly beat Italy's Andrea Pusateri, who finished a 1sec behind the German.

Completing the top three was Ricardo Ten Argiles of Spain after he crossed the line 9sec slower than Senska.
