British Cycling Paracycling Team Roster

| Join Team GB

The British Cycling Paracycling Team exists exclusively for Paralympic disciplines, with the aim to develop world-class athletes who will contend for and win Paralympic medals. Currently the only Paralympic events are road (road race, time trial, handcycling relay) and track (kilo, individual pursuit, tandem sprint, team sprint).

There are three tiers to the British Paralympic Programme including - Talent Team, Academy and Podium Programme. Throughout the three Paralympic Programmes, the aim is to create competition for places and strength in depth. Team riders are selected in Autumn, with a review period six months later. There is a 'no closed door policy' and riders who are performing at a high level can be invited to guest with the programme at other times of the year. Some will go on to join the programme.

Here are the definitive details of all the members of the British Paracycling Team, from development to management.

Team Management
The British Cycling Paracycling Team headed by Paracycling Performance Manager Gareth Shepherd, who is supported by Lead Coach Chris Furber, Endurance Coach Tom Stanton and Coach Jayne Ellis.


Paralympic Podium Programme
The Paralympic Podium Programme is dedicated to supporting mature, highly skilled elite athletes as they aim to win medals in major competitions, such as World Cups, Champsionships and Paralympic Games.

Many of the athletes are members of professional trade teams in addition to their membership of the programme. For many, riding for a Trade team is an essential part of their preparation for major events, giving them access to the volume of racing and level of competition necessary to achieve the technical and physical conditioning required for major championships.

Many athletes live close to the programme's base in Manchester, though their racing commitments take them round the world.

All athletes involved share common levels of professionalism, dedication and the will to succeed in their chosen disciplines. They are supported by an equally committed and focused staff, including team managers, coaches, mechanics, masseurs, sports scientists and a number of administrators.

Paralympic Academy Programme
The Paralympic Academy Programme aims to deliver riders to the Paralympic Podium Programme who are ready to win medals at World Championships and Paralympics.

Since its inception, the programme has taken talented riders and helped take them to new levels. Riders live the lives of full-time professional bike riders seven days a week. They are required to be disciplined, committed and focused.

They are required to live close to the programme's base in Manchester and the challenges thrown at them have to be tackled against a background of high levels of self-discipline and year-round performance expectations. Of course, for the aspiring professional cyclist, sacrifices of lifestyle are a small price to pay in return for a chance to chase personal goals.

As with the whole cycling programme, from Talent Team through to Paralympic Podium Programme there is a gradual move from skills training to physical conditioning. The first year in the Academy is usually heavily skills-focused, but as rider progress they will find themselves experiencing the progressive workload increases that they will have to handle if they are to succeed at the very highest levels.

Of course, many of the riders on the Programme will have progressed via the Talent Team, but there are still opportunities to join the Programme direct, if you have the talent and the drive.
