Hello everyone, my name is Darren Hicks and I am a 34 year old Elite Para Cyclist. I was involved in a Motor Vehicle Accident in August of 2014 in which I suffered severe leg and neck trauma. I began cycling again at the end of 2015 and haven't looked back since. My goals are quite simple, I want to be the best in the world and to be able to prove it at the biggest event in the world, the Paralympics.
