Great Britain Para-Cycling Team duo Corrine Hall and Lora Turnham’s remarkable world championship-winning performance has been voted British Cycling Ride of the Year 2013.


Great Britain Para-Cycling Team duo Corrine Hall and Lora Turnham’s remarkable world championship-winning performance has been voted British Cycling Ride of the Year 2013.


Hall and Turnham’s time-trial victory at September’s UCI Para-cycling Road World Championships took 41% of the vote with Chris Froome’s Tour de France win second with a total of 16.9%. Becky James’ keirin world title ride completed the top three with a 9.5% share.


Voting was open to the general public who were given the task of choosing the British Cycling Ride of the Year from 10 nominations.


Twenty-five-year-old Turnham - who has a hereditary sight loss condition - and Hall were over nine seconds faster than second-place New Zealand in Baie Comeau, Canada.


The pair had only been riding together on the tandem since March after a training camp in Mallorca.


Two gold medals at June’s UCI Para-cycling Road World Cup in Sergovia, Spain started the gold rush and were followed by another victory in the world cup round in Canada a week before the world championships.


And the talented pair completed a superb season with their first rainbow jerseys despite the early setback of a dropped chain.


The British Cycling Ride of the Year award celebrates the achievements of British riders competing across the world.


Their performances in world-class competition not only demonstrate their ability and dedication to the sport, but act as an inspiration for cyclists of all abilities.
