Paracyclist search begins
British Cycling has launched a talent identification drive to find new female Paralympic champions for the Rio 2016 and Tokyo 2020 Games.
The drive, which is aimed at filling the potential medal gaps that currently exist among the current female para-cycling squad, is being backed by Paralympic medallist Karen Darke.
Talent Assessment events will take place in October, with those looking to be considered asked to contact British Cycling.
London 2012 Paralympic silver medallist Darke, said: "There is no better feeling than being on a podium at a Paralympic Games and feeling an immense sense of pride and achievement at being crowned the world's best.
"With a commitment and drive to succeed at the highest level, a structured programme and a great team behind you, there really is no limit to what can be done and I'd advise all sporty women and girls out there to dream big.
"There is nothing to lose in applying to British Cycling and so, so much to be gained."
