Biography

Corrine began cycling in 2005 and earned a place on the British Cycling Talent Team after undergoing testing at a local exhibition. She was on the talent team for three years and had graduated onto the Olympic Development Programme before deciding to pursue her education.

However during her final year at university she was approached by then Great Britain Cycling Team para-cycling head coach, Chris Furber to try out as a tandem pilot. She joined the Great Britain Cycling Team in early 2013, and was immediately paired with Lora Fachie.

World Champions on the road  

Her partnership with Lora couldn’t have got off to a better start. At their first major international event, the 2013 UCI Para-cycling Road World Championships in Canada, they won gold in the time trial and silver in the road race.

They enjoyed an even better year in 2014 dominating women’s tandem racing. They added another world title to their collection, this time in the road race and also picked up a bronze medal in the time trial. They also won double gold at UCI Para-cycling Road World Cups in Spain and Italy.

While they continued to pick up medals at world cup level in 2015, winning three golds, they struggled at the world championships in Switzerland, finishing out of the medals in the time trial and the road race.

Track success and Paralympic gold

After the relative disappointment of their 2015 season Hall and Fachie approached the 2016 season with success on the track and the road their goal.

They got their year off to a promising start in March winning a bronze medal in the pursuit at the UCI Para-cycling Track World Championships, the first time the pair had medalled together on the track.

They then switched their focus back to the road and the UCI Para-cycling Road World Cup in Belgium and picked up a silver medal in the time trial and the road race, signalling their return to form.

They carried this form into the Paralympics, winning gold and breaking the world record in the tandem pursuit on the track and picking up a bronze medal in the time trial on the road.

A change of partner for 2017 saw Hall team up with Sophie Thornhill for the 2017 UCI Para-cycling Track World Championships - a move that paid dividends for the duo as they won three world titles, taking gold in the tandem pursuit, kilo and sprint.

July saw Hall resume her successful partnership with Lora Fachie on the road for the first time since their Paralympic success, at the UCI Para-cycling Road World Cup in Emmen. It was a positive return to action with the pair winning silver in the time trial and finishing fourth in the road race.

That earned the duo selection for the UCI Para-cycling Road World Championships in Pietermaritzburg, South Africa, where they found themselves back on the podium on the world stage once again - winning silver in the time trial, before taking seventh place in the road race.

Together again at the 2018 UCI Para-cycling Track World Championships in Rio de Janeiro, Hall retained her individual pursuit world title - this time as pilot for Fachie. The gold medal was the duo's first-ever on the track as a pair.
