The Strathpeffer cyclist competes in his first event in Tokyo on the track when he rides in the C3 3000 metre individual pursuit qualifying at 4am.

If he is successful in reaching the final, Graham will compete for the medals at 7.52am.

During the Paralympics, Graham will also compete in the C3 Time Trial on Tuesday at 5.30am and in the C1–3 Road Race next Thursday at 1.48am. All races are expected to be shown live on Channel 4.

Graham was born with bilateral club feet, which leaves him with no calf muscle and little to no movement in his ankles.

After getting into mountain biking in his early teenage years, Graham switched his focus and caught the attention of British Cycling’s para-cycling programme in 2016.
