Double junior world champion Tom Pidcock’s incredible year in 2017 has led to him being awarded Great Britain Cycling Team Rider of the Year. The 18-year-old won multiple honours throughout the last 12 months but his stand-out achievements were becoming junior cyclo-cross world champion and the junior road time trial world title holder. Tom, who received SportsAid support in 2015, took 28.72% of the 5,800 votes.
Para alpine skiers Mille Knight, Menna Fitzpatrick, James Whitley and Chris Lloyd will fly the flag for Great Britain at the PyeongChang 2018 Winter Paralympic Games having been selected to represent ParalympicsGB in March. The four athletes, all of whom have been supported by SportsAid, are among the first set of squad members announced today (5 January). The full ParalympicsGB line-up will be completed by 15 February.
