Galway native, Ronan Grimes, has emerged as one of the best Para-Cyclists in the World. Grimes found his way to Para-Cycling by an unorthodox root through the Irish Government’s Cycle to Work scheme.
31 year old Ronan progressed quickly through the Para Cycling ranks from his debut in 2017 to winning medals at both the World Road and Track Championships in 2019 before announcing his return to post-pandemic competition with a brilliant third placed finish at the Road World Championships in 2021, a result that was all the more impressive considering he had crashed earlier in the event.
Ronan will be one of Ireland’s best hopes for success at the 2020 Paralympic Games when they get under way in August 2021.
