Brayden McDougall

Brayden McDougall always wanted to ride a bike. Born with cerebral palsy, he spent many years riding with training wheels and attempting to ride without them. His family had just started to look into getting a trike, when suddenly he mastered riding on two wheels.

In 2002, McDougall was approached by Stephen Burke, the National Cycling Centre Calgary Program Coordinator & Olympic Oval Development Program Coach. Stephen asked McDougall whether he could ride a bike, and whether he would like to train with some other riders who also have a disability.

McDougall was seventh at the Beijing 2008 Paralympic Games in the track kilo and pursuit. He has competed at three world championships and earned fourth-place finishes three times.

He is currently enrolled at Mount Royal University in the Sports and Recreation Administration program.
