August 5 marked one year to go until the start of the Rio 2016 Olympic and Paralympic Games, with Go-Ride graduates across road, track and BMX well into their preparations to compete against the world’s best.
With some exciting qualifying events over the next 12 months, we’ll be following each athlete’s progress on their journey from Go-Ride to Rio.
Speaking of his pathway through the sport, double Olympic gold medallist Jason Kenny, said: “I started my journey in cycling at a Go-Ride Club – and couldn’t have asked for a better introduction to the sport. Now I’m training hard for Rio with the rest of the team as the countdown has begun.”
Make sure you check back to the website and visit the Go-Ride Facebook page for news on training and competition. While the team know that the journey will be tough, they will be giving their all over the next year in preparation for the Games themselves.
