The 2016 Olympics are taking place in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil this year and cycling athletes have been training hard the past four years. The United States cycling team currently holds the top spot in the International Cycling Union (UCI) standings after a stellar 2015 that saw the team win twelve medals in the UCI Para-cycling Track World Championships plus an additional eighteen medals at the World Championships in Switzerland.

With the momentum from its recent successes, the U.S. cycling team is setting its sights on showing the same winning performance at the 2016 Rio Paralympic Games. On the women’s side, Jamie Whitmore is looking to repeat her incredible performance after winning a trio of gold medals while track world champion Joe Berenyi is also coming into 2016 with a fantastic record. Berenyi won four medals the Toronto 2015 Parapan American Games and he also won gold at the London 2012 Paralympic Games.

The U.S. cycling team is comprised of nine Paralympians and a quintet of reigning world champions, ensuring quite the formidable team as the 2016 games approach.
