Sports

Para-cycling

Description

Para-cycling athletes are divided in four classes, each being subdivided according to the disability and the functional level of the person.

Some athletes with cerebral palsy can compete on tricycles (T) whereas others use bicycles (C), just like athletes with a motor limitation.

Para-cyclists missing both inferior limbs, paraplegic and quadriplegic athletes use a hand cycle (H) powered by arm muscle power.

Finally, tandem cycles (B) were designed for visually disabled athletes and their pilot.
