Canada's Shelley Gautier is once again World Champion. The para-cyclist from Toronto successfully defended her Time Trial world title on Thursday at the 2015 UCI Para-Cycling Road World Championships, earning her ninth Rainbow Jersey in as many starts.

Para-cyclists from all regions of the world are competing in Notwill, Switzerland, this weekend, with the goal of capturing the rainbow jersey in the time trial and road races.

Gautier raced to the gold medal in the Women's T1 class, topping the podium in front of two Russian competitors. The Toronto-native former mountain biker stopped the clock at 36:32.87 on the 14 kilometres course, more than two minutes faster than silver medallist, Yulia Sibagatova of Russia.

In the women's C5 class, Nicole Clermont of Sherbrooke came up just nine seconds short of climbing onto the podium, taking fourth place with a time of 34:23. Marie-Claude Molnar, racing in the Women C4 class, took fifth place.
