Final chance to buy Paralympic Road Cycling tickets

Monday, May 21 2012

Tickets for the Paralympic Road Cycling events at Brands Hatch have gone back on sale today (Monday) and are now available online and by phone on a first come, first served basis. These tickets will remain on sale until all sessions are sold out. For more information about tickets for the Games click here.

Paralympic Road Cycling is one of the top three Paralympic events and is the biggest Cycling discipline within the London 2012 Games, involving 225 athletes from more than 50 nations competing for one of the 32 medals that will be available. The sport was originally introduced in the 1988 Seoul Paralympics and is now practiced in more than 40 countries.

From 5 to 8 September 2012 riders will race round the iconic circuit at Brands Hatch before heading out onto local roads nearby. Over the four days of racing, 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.

British hopes are expected to lie with Darren Kenny, Britain's most successful Paralympic cyclist, plus Rachel Morris and several others following success in last year's Para Cycling World Championships. Also hoping to be returning to Brands Hatch 20 years on from his exploits in Formula 3000 is double Champ Car title holder Alex Zanardi.

Kent County Council and Sevenoaks District Council are working closely with LOCOG, MotorSport Vision, the Police, Kent Fire & Rescue Service, the Ambulance Service and the Highway Authority to ensure that this once in a lifetime event will be something that the County can be proud of.

As we move closer to the Paralympic Games, Kent's work around disability sport continues grow with ever increasing numbers of disabled people accessing mainstream sports opportunities. For more information about disability sport or Kent's work within Sport and physical activity click here.
