Disabled cyclist, Terry ByrneTerry

Terry ‘Tel’ Byrne, is a 26-year-old para-cyclist from Manchester with ambitions to get a medal at the World Championships in 2010 and at the Paralympics 2012. Terry lost his lower right leg in August 2008 when serving in Afghanistan with the 2nd Battalion, The Parachute Regiment, when he was hit by a landmine explosion. Terry was identified through the Battle Back programme, a joint initiative between Paralympics GB and UK Sport targeted towards injured servicemen, and has relocated to Manchester to train with the National Team.

He is a member of the British Cycling Development Team and in recent competitions came second at the 2010 Disability Wales Grand Prix (one of the main senior events in the Para Cycling calendar) and a World record holder with Team GB in the Sprint event.

Terry received a grant of 750 in September 2010 towards his performance cycling efforts. The funding has been provided via Sports Aid, a JWCT partner organisation, which is helping the next generation of young able-bodied and disabled British sportsmen and women to succeed.

Terry said on receiving the funding, “the grant will enable me to travel to more races increasing my prospects, I’ll also put it towards equipment which will all trim valuable seconds off and help me hit my full potential and goals.”
