Para-Cycling | Cycling Canada Cyclisme

Introduced as a Paralympic sport in Seoul in 1988 for athletes with visual impairment, para-cycling now includes those with cerebral palsy, amputations and other physical impairments. Whether on the road or on the track, Cycling Canada closely collaborates with the Canadian Paralympic Committee to maximize the potential of all our para-cyclists competing here and abroad in four categories: bicycle, tricycle, handcycle and tandem.

Talent ID
Classification System

Talent Identification is the interface between competition and high-performance sports. There are many ways of becoming a National Team athlete, including being identified at select events or transferring from another sport.

Becoming classified is the first step in a para athletes’ competitive sporting career. Guided under the UCI, Classification defines who is eligible to compete in para-cycling.
