About Dame Sarah:
With huge experience in a range of racing, Sarah is a reliable and strong rider to have in any team, quick thinking and able to play the support role as well as be a team leader. Having competed in 7 Paralympic Games (3 in cycling as Sarah was previously a swimmer), Sarah is now Great Britain’s longest serving athlete. Having given birth to her second child in October 2017, Sarah announced her return to international competition with a dominant display to win two gold at the 2018 Paracycling Road World Championships. More recently at the 2019 Track World Championships Sarah won 2 gold and a silver, along with securing victory in the Omnium test event and briefly holding the Flying 200m Time Trial world record before it was broken two minutes later.
Now targeting selection for her 8th Paralympic Games in Tokyo next year, Sarah is also looking forward to trying to build on her success in the women’s peloton at both national and international events, whilst guiding the riders of her team who she now mentors alongside Magnus Backstedt.
