Yesterday Javier Silva and Fausto Esparza from Mexico arrived in the Sport Compass House in the Royal Docks Community School next to ExCel. Javier Silva and Fausto Esparza are the creators of a new type of cycling, Cycling Independent. This new sport is designed for people with visual disabilities. To make it more clear what it is: Blind cyclists use a tandem (which has two seats), in which a cyclist who can see sits as a guide and the visually impaired person is in the back seat as a second pedal. In this case, Javier, who is blind, uses a traditional bicycle and is guided by Fausto through a radio and an auditory device.

Fausto, 39, was a professional cyclist for 10 years and represented the national cycling team of Mexico for several years. Four years ago he had an accident in a contest and lost mobility chest down. Javier, 41, lost his sight six years ago because of a virus that affected his brain. When Javier Silva and Fausto Esparza met each other, they combined their talents and developed this new form of cycling. The two sportsmen work as a team. Javier is guided by Fausto through a radio and an auditory device. They think this way of cycling is great because of the freedom to cycle independently.

In 2011 Javier and Fauso participated in the Parapan American Games, where they were exposing their sport. Javier en Fausto are really happy that Sport Compass invited them to expose the Cycling Independent in London during the Paralympic Games. Their main goal is to let the world know about this new sport. They also want to put up the sport of disabled people in other countries and they would like to see that Cycling Independent could be considered as a Paralympic Sport. “Cycling independently is accompanied with adrenaline that is latent in every breath. It was very important for me to discover more skills and enjoy the freedom of cycling independently. The teamwork with Fausto is a true test of confidence.“ Javier Silva.
