BRITAIN’S most decorated Paralympian Dame Sarah Storey will bid to break the women’s track cycling hour record at the Lee Valley VeloPark on Saturday 28 February.

The 11-time paralympic gold medal-winner is looking to better the current record of 46.065km, set by Dutch rider Leontien Zijlaard-van Moorsel in Mexico in 2003.

Storey is the first female cyclist to attempt the hour record since rule changes governing permitted equipment were introduced in May.
