All-Marine Warrior Games Cycling Team

The Marines on the cycling team for the 2012 Warrior Games know all about pushing their bodies to the limit with each pedal toward the finish line. Whether riding an upright bike, a recumbent bike or a hand-cycle, each Marine shows a determination to beat out the competition in this year’s Warrior Games.

The cycling competition has several categories for both men and women. The men competitions are the 10-kilometer handcycling, the 20-kilometer recumbent, and the 30-kilometer open and physical disability. The women have a 10-kilometer handcycling or recumbent portion. There is also a 30-kilometer tandem race for the visually impaired.
