Just minutes after Alexandre Lyautey, another French, won a medal in the road race on Tuesday, August 31. In the H5 class, Loic Vergnaud grabbed the silver medal at the first Paralympic Games in Tokyo.
The Roanne native topped his rank, and is the 2021 Vice World Champion in the time and road race in the H5 class. His second position quickly emerged on the Fuji Speedway where he held two intermediate pit stops of 8 and 16 km.
Dutch Paralympic champion Mitch Wales was already so strong that he never escaped the title. Reaching 1’02” behind Valize, Loc Vergnaud took a fine silver, leaving Ireland’s Gary O’Reilly 21 seconds behind. It is the 30th medal of the French Paralympic delegation in Tokyo.
