GB Para-Cycling, Track Camp

Eight days of intensive track training will put the finishing touches to Para-Cycling GB’s preparations for the world championships. The fourteen rider squad are at the Newport Velodrome in Wales before heading to Los Angeles, California for the championships. A mixture of high intensity intervals, motor pacing and steady road work will keep the squad busy. Video analysis and physiological testing will provide vital data for the coaches to work with. The London Paralympic games are less than 200 days away and media interest in the athletes is all in a day’s work. It promises to be a busy year for the GB Para-cycling team on and off the bike. However, the prospect of winning medals on home soil will no doubt keep them focussed! More to Come
