Storey, who was made a Dame in the New Year Honours list in recognition of her Paralympic career and efforts at London 2012, is expected to give birth in June.

The 35-year-old has, to date, enjoyed a stellar career first in swimming and then cycling, and won all four events she entered at London 2012.

That took her career Paralympic medal tally to 22 including 11 golds to pull her level with Baroness Tanni Grey-Thompson and Dave Roberts in terms of career titles.

Storey, who is married to three-time Paralympic gold medallist Barney Storey, rides for the Breast Cancer Care Team which will partner with Scottish Cycling and compete in road races across the UK and Europe in 2013.
