Neil Fachie insists he is determined to come back stronger after securing silver in Rio.
The Aberdonian admits it frustrates him that he could not retain his gold medal from London.
Holland’s Tristan Bangma shocked everyone to produce a Paralympic record time of 59.822 seconds in the Tandem B time trial.
The 19-year-old was also the first paracyclist to break the 60-second mark at sea level – a target Fachie had set for himself.
And the 32-year-old quashed any notions of retirement as he wants to meet that mark himself.
Fachie said: “I want to carry on regardless of what medal we won in Rio, and it’s made me that much hungrier to go back and get back on the bike.
“It genuinely frustrates me that another bike was the first to break 60 seconds at sea level because that was my target for so long, so I want to get out there and start doing that as a regular thing now.”
Fachie admitted he has been dwelling on his performance since the race on Sunday.
The Aberdonian describes himself as critical of his own race – win or lose. But he acknowledged the Dutch team were just better on the day and deserved to win.
He said: “I’ve been looking at some things I could have improved on, but we did ride a really good race.
“I knew it would probably take a time like that to win and fair play to the Dutch boys for doing that.
“The result isn’t what I wanted but a silver medal is a great achievement, I know that, so I can’t be too disappointed.”
Fachie will compete on the road in Rio for the first time tomorrow – a rather arduous introduction to this type of race.
This is due to a rule that requires Paralympians to take part in at least two events.
And the Aberdonian confesses he has little hope of a medal tomorrow afternoon (5pm GMT).
“It’s the first time I’ve raced on the road and coming into the pinnacle of sport, it’s probably not the right time to do that,” he joked.
“We’ve trained on the road, we do training camps but coming into the Games, we tailored everything towards the 1km for months.
“I doubt we have any chance of success but we’ll give it our best,” he admitted.
