Austrian handcyclist Walter Ablinger has won the men's Prudential RideLondon HandCycle Classic.

This is the second year in a row Ablinger has finished first in the race, after winning the event in its inception last year.

He managed to complete the 15-mile course from Kingston upon Thames to The Mall in central London in 39 minutes and 19 seconds.

Alblinger, who won gold in the London Paralympics, said: “I am so happy to win again because that was a tough race.

“After the Paralympics in London and the world championships, London seems to be a good place for me.

“This is my third race here since the Paralympics and I’ve won them all.

“I wish I could race here every week. Perhaps I should emigrate here.”

Britain’s Brian Alldis came in second, completing the race a minute-and-a-half after Ablinger.

The race started at around 8:30am.
