Great Britain's Mark Colbourne had to settle for London 2012 Paralympic Games silver in the men's C1 time-trial at Brands Hatch.

Colbourne, who won C1-3 individual pursuit gold in the velodrome, clocked 25 minutes 29 seconds on the 16-kilometre course, but Michael Teuber of Germany pipped him to victory, finishing first in 25mins 16secs.

It was the 42-year-old Welshman's third medal of his first Games after breaking his back in a paragliding accident three years ago.
