ParalympicsGB - the cyclists to watch in Rio

The Paralympics have finally arrived and we anticipate a glut of gold for Team GB following hot on the heels of the Olympic success in Rio.

On the cycling front, we've picked our top three cyclists to back for gold in Brazil.

1. Dame Sarah Storey

She struck gold in London on the track and is all set to do it again four years later. Storey kicks her campaign off on Thursday 8 September in the C5 3,000m individual pursuit in her seventh - yes seventh - Paralympics. After switching from swimming, Storey has elevated herself to the nation's most successful Paralympian and looks set to reaffirm that status in South America.

2. Kadeena Cox

Cox will represent ParalympicsGB as a C4 athlete in cycling on both velodrome and road and as a T37 sprinter on the athletics track. That's a total of five events for Cox to negotiate in Brazil. Cox, according British Cycling, was showing promise as an able-bodied sprinter until suffering a stroke that led to a diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis. Her full list of events in Rio consists of 
the 100m on the athletics track, then the 500m time trial on the bike, then back into her spikes for the 400m and the 4x100m relay before finishing with the bike road race.

 
3. David Stone
Stone claimed gold in London in the T1-2 road race, adding to two golds from Beijing in 2008 and a further time trial bronze in London. He is gunning for the road race and time trial double in the Trike class again in Rio. Here is is being welcomed back to his home town of Leeds in 2012.
