Team Press Release
Britain’s greatest female Paralympian, Dame Sarah Storey, will make her comeback for the Great Britain Cycling Team at the 2018 UCI Para-cycling Track World Championships from 22-25 March in Rio de Janeiro.

Storey, who took a break from the sport following her triple gold medal success at the 2016 Paralympics to give birth to her second child, will be aiming to add to an incredible haul of 23 cycling world titles, competing in the 500 metre time trial, individual pursuit and scratch race.

Storey said: “I’m delighted to be back in the hunt for rainbow jerseys although I never expected to be back so quickly after Charlie’s arrival four months ago. We are going into the qualification period for Tokyo 2020 so I’m excited to start the build up for what will be my eighth Paralympic Games. I’m looking forward to seeing what the trip will bring.”
