Stephen Bate, Megan Giglia and Jody Cundy MBE are OFFICIALLY on the Road to RIO!
Following a press conference held at channel 4’s London Studio this morning for Paralympics GB, C4Paralympics and British Cycling it has been officially announced that Para-T riders Megan, Stephen and Jody will be flying to Rio in Brazil later this year.
With only 83 days to go before the opening ceremony of the Paralympic games we are thrilled to announce that these 3 riders will be representing queen and country on the world stage, with many medals and World records between them we can be sure to see them make history with the rest of the the 15 strong team so far who have been announced today.
Jody as you will know is our founder and will be competing in his 6th Paralympic Games, whereas Stephen and Megan will have their first taste of what can only be called the greatest honour for any athlete and we have every faith that they will give it everything they have.
We would like to thank our sponsors MMS 360 who have supported us over many years to continue to support such an amazing bunch of riders to success on the national, international and world stage.
This is fantastic news for the whole team but certainly with many talented riders who have medals at various podiums all around the world this year on the international scene this news does come without a spoonful of honey to help the medicine go down. Special mention goes out to Louis Rolfe, he won a Gold and Silver medal at this years Track World Championship in Italy and we are deeply saddened to not see him here today and with any sport at this level it does not come without it’s testing times and we hope that this does not discourage him from future goals and to see him in Tokyo 2020.
