The Swiss Para-cycling team is making their way to Greenville, USA, to attend the 2014 UCI Para-cycling World Championships.

Para-cycling veteran Heinz Frei is leading the team of six, and is looking for more medal success after winning two silver medals at last year’s world championships in Baie-Comeau, Canada in the MH3 class.

Other medal contenders on the team include Paralympic champion Sandra Graf (WH3) and Tobias Fankhauser (MH2), bronze medallist at the 2013 world championships.

Jean-Marc Berset (MH3), Athos Libanore (MH4) and Roger Bolliger are completing the Swiss team and are also aiming for successful finishes.

More than 450 athletes from 45 countries will compete in the 2014 UCI Para-cycling World Championships in Greenville, USA, from 28 August to 1 September.
