Meet Jon Dunkerley & James Cook
Jon and James were paired up in March of 2017. At the time they were living on opposite sides of the country (Jon in Ottawa; James in Victoria). James had never ridden a tandem bicycle and Jon had a bowl style skateboard helmet and his first pair of clip-less cycling shoes, which he was keen to try out for race day.
After a couple of wobbly starts and one low speed crash, Jon and James stormed onto their first podium, taking a bronze medal and their first steps toward the 2020 Paralympic Games.
