Holly Dapp of Calgary won Canada's fourth gold medal and eighth overall on Saturday at the UCI Para-cycling Road World Cup in Baie Comeau, Quebec.
Racing in the women's H2 category, Dapp completed the three lap, 28.4 kilometre race with a time of one hour, 37 minutes and 20 seconds.
"I learned a lot today," said Dapp, "it was my first road race and I loved it. I'm very appreciative of the crew here, who made it a lot of fun but were professional and helpful. I've come a long way in the last two years, but I know I still have a long way to go."
In other Canadian results, Myriam Adam of Saguenay, Quebec, was fourth in the women's H3 road race, as was Kara Douville of Calgary in the women's H4 event. The men's H3 road race had four Canadian competitors, led by Joey Desjardins in fifth, followed by Alex Hyndman in sixth, Charles Moreau in eighth and Rico Morneau in 14th. In the men's H2 road race, Matthew Kinnie was the top Canadian in eighth place, followed former world champion Robert Labbe in ninth and Eric Page in tenth. Patrick Desnoyers, at his first World Cup, finished sixth in the H5 men's road race.
