In a world-first, para-cycling races will be included at the Track Cycling World Cup, which is set to take place from December 14 at London’s Lee Valley Velopark.

The decision has been welcomed and celebrated by the wider cycling community, including the Cycle Accident Claims team.

Para-athletes will compete in the men’s and women’s tandem sprint, THE C1-C5 team sprint, women’s C1-5 500m time trial and men’s C1-5 1km time trial on the opening day.

Jon Pett, Great Britain’s Cycling Team’s Head of para-cycling, is ecstatic over the change.

“This doesn’t just mean winning medals at elite level. Our para-cyclists are role models to so many, and a wide audience is crucial to inspiring people around the country and the world.”

The UK have a number of leading, incredibly talented para-cyclists who will no doubt relish this opportunity and make the Track Cyclng World Cup even more entertaining.

Esther Britten, Head of Major Events at UK Sport, believes the move will benefit all cycling athletes.

“This integration of Paralympic and Olympic disciplines is great for both athletes who will benefit from extra competition experience as they prepare for Tokyo 2020, and the fans who will be able to support our cycling heroes from different parts of the sport. We welcome and support this innovation to the UK leg of the World Cup series.”

What our clients say about
Cycle Accident  Claims Management.

After a nasty cycle accident we placed our trust to CACM. Jan Canter and his very efficient team talked us through the procedure. The complete journey from post-accident to settlement was very smooth, painless and we are very happy with the result CACM supplied us with. A job well done by a very professional company.

I was involved in a cycling accident and CACM have acted efficiently and courteously throughout my case. They are busy but despite this they were very good at returning my calls. I was also very satisfied with the outcome of my claim. I would recommend them highly.

Friendly, explanatory and supportive service from beginning to end. CACM supported me through a bicycle injury involving a car. Fantastic experience throughout an uncertain time. Cannot recommend highly enough. Thank you!
