Stephen Bate

In the summer of 2013 Steve attended a talent identification camp with the Great Britain Cycling Team and was accepted onto the development squad and in 2014 he was paired up with pilot Adam Duggleby.

He was selected onto the podium squad in December 2014 and since then has won multiple medals at road world cup level and has also been selected for two para-cycling track world championships and the 2015 UCI Para-cycling Road World Championships.

Away from cycling Steve is a passionate climber and, before joining the Great Britain Cycling Team, he became the first visually impaired person to solo climb El Capitan in Yosemite, California.

At the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games Steve won gold in the individual pursuit and road time trial and bronze in the road race.

Steve has a condition called Retinitis Pigmentosa and is registered blind.
