Day eight of the London 2012 Paralympic Games sees Tredegar cyclist Mark Colbourne back in action.

He won a gold and a silver medal in the velodrome last week and a second silver in the time trial yesterday, this time in the individual road race.

The cyclist was the first Welsh competitor to bag a gold medal in the 3km pursuit on Friday, and with it breaking the world record.

The 42-year-old broke his back in a paragliding accident on the Gower in 2009.

The road race is due to start at 14:30.
