For the first time, Australian Paralympic cyclists and other athletes had access to the latest technology, in addition to professional coaching and athlete support. Greg Ball has some of the technology on display as he rides for gold on the track in the team sprint at the Sydney summer Paralympics. Ball was the specialist lead out rider in the team sprint, able to generate power off the start to set his two teammates up for the final two laps. Australia dominated the cycling competition in Sydney.
