The Executive Director of Disability Sport Wales says Mark Colbourne has made an 'incredible impact' on the world of paracycling.
Colbourne announced his retirement from the sport today.
His record speaks for itself. He is a world class rider and will be a sad loss to British and Welsh sport.
Mark has also been the perfect role model, inspiring many young riders to further their own personal goals. In this sense Mark is an important part of our legacy and we hope that he will continue to act in an ambassadorial role for Disability Sport Wales and continue to help us to inspire a new generation of athletes.
