Tokyo 2021 Paralympics: Cycling (Road & Track) Schedule, Fixture & Calendar

Since the 1984 Summer Paralympics, the cycling sport has been appearing. Cyclists are given a classification depending on the type and extent of their disability. The classification system allows cyclists to compete against others with a similar level of function. Lots of changes in the cycling tournament.
