GB Team for UCI Para-Cycling Road Worlds

Story posted July 5, 2010

British Cycling has announced the names of nine riders who are set to compete in the UCI Para-Cycling Road World Championships, taking place in Canada from the 17 - 22 August 2010. The squad comprises both new and experienced riders, including Paralympic and World Champion Sarah Storey as well as recent Gold medallists from the UCI Para Cycling World Cup, Rachel Morris and David Stone.

When talking about his hopes for the forthcoming championships, Gareth Sheppard, Performance Manager for the GB Para-Cycling Team, said: “After the recent strong performances at the Para-Cycling World Cup, the team had pretty much selected itself.  All the riders selected have the ability to deliver some very strong performances at these World Championships."

We are not setting specific performance goals, instead we want to ensure that every member of the team, both rider and support staff has performed to the best of their ability. If after the competition we can say that, then it will have been a success. If not, we will need to have a long hard look in the mirror and learn and keep building for the Paralympics in London which is the ultimate goal.

The squad in full is:

Karen Darke
Shaun McKeown
Rachel Morris
David Stone
Sarah Storey
Lora Turnham / Rebecca Rimmington (Pilot)
Rik Waddon
Russ White
