Jody Cundy 'makes amends' after disqualification

Jody Cundy told Paralympics GB; "It feels like somebody’s died. They haven’t; I’ve just missed a bike race. I’ll come back tomorrow.

"Although the 4km Pursuit isn’t my favoured event, I’ve won a bronze medal at the last World Championships and a silver the time before. I’m in good shape, so there’s no reason why I can’t try and make a medal final. Then we’ll see what happens after that."
