Cape Town - South Africa's Daryl Impey displayed fine form at the UCI Road World Championships when he bagged a silver medal with his Orica GreenEdge team in the team-time trial event on Sunday.
"This is my first World Championship medal.
"I have had a great season this year and I look forward to finishing it off in a good way in my final race for the year being the Road World Championships this Sunday with Team South Africa."
Impey took to Twitter to confirm his happiness.
Wow, boys were absolutely incredible today! We left it all out there and proud of our ride, disappointed as well as it was so close. 0.8sec
Hurts us but we can't fault ourselves. Omega rode a super race and congrats to them. Silver medal this year but still super happy.
