A promising cyclist new to the Para-Cycling scene is celebrating after an impressive performance at his inaugural competitive event.

Colin Wallace, a teacher from Aberdeen who has only recently gone through classification, took home a commendable 6th place in the 200m Flying Start event at the 2019 National Track Cycling Championships in Manchester. The event also saw World Records beaten by the cyclists finishing in 1st and 2nd place.

Colin, of Aberdeen-based club, Deeside Thistle CC, entered the event just to get a bit of experience and is still undergoing testing with British Cycling after being successful during UK Sport’s ‘Discover Your Gold’ Talent ID event, but has shown great promise by bursting on to the Para-Cycling scene after many years of cycling in mainstream events.

Well done to Colin & thank you to everyone in his Club, at British Cycling and at the velodrome in Glasgow who have helped him over the last few months.
