A disabled cyclist is taking on an ultimate, stamina draining, 24-hour relay race to raise money for Action Medical Research.

Robert Groves, from Crawley, is racing in Action RIDE24 on Saturday and Sunday.

The event sees teams of four and solo riders racing day and night on the Thruxton Motor Circuit. “This is the first competitive race since I became disabled nine years ago,” said Robert. “I will be the first and only disabled person in this race for me to qualify for Race Across America next year.” Anyone who would like to sponsor Robert and help him raise funds can visit www.action.org.uk/sponsor/raceforthedisabled.
