Paralympic road cycling comes to Brands Hatch

Paralympic Road Cycling is the biggest cycling discipline within the London 2012 Games, involving 225 athletes from more than 50 nations and it’s coming to Kent.

From 5 to 8 September 2012 riders will race round the circuit at Brands Hatch before heading out onto local roads nearby.

There will be road races going from 30km to 120km and individual and time trials ranging from 20km to 35km.

A total of 32 events will be run with competitors with a range of disabilities including visual impairments, cerebral palsy and amputations competing on bicycles, tricycles, tandems and hand cycles.

Don’t miss your chance to see the exciting cycling races at Brands Hatch, by applying for tickets from the London 2012 ticketing website between 9 and 26 September 2011.

Tickets will cost £10 (or £5 for those aged 16 and under and 60 and over).

Even though the event will be ticketed, part of the route will be free for you to go and watch the cycling events.

The ParalympicsGB cycling team won 20 medals, including 17 gold, at the Beijing Paralympic Games in 2008 so we are hoping that their success can be replicated at Brands Hatch during the London 2012 Games.
