Ross Wilson

Ross WIlson

Ross Wilson is off to a flying start in his para-cycling career. He won the bronze medal at his first international event, a World Cup in Spain in 2014. In 2015, he took second place in the 3000-m individual pursuit at the 2015 Para-Cycling Track World Championships, his second ever track race.

Although he crashed at the Toronto 2015 Parapan American Games and could not record a result, Wilson has since recovered and in March 2016 was able to win his second consecutive silver medal in the 3000-m at the Para-Cycling Track World Championships.

Wilson is in his third season with the national team. He purchased a road bike for himself in 2012 as his reward for losing 100 pounds. He credits his coach Cam Jennings for helping him develop his abilities in the sport. He has a neurological condition called Charcot-Marie-Tooth-Disease.
