How losing his sight spurred cyclist Steve Bate to the Paralympics

Steve Bate was told he had four years left before he could lose his eyesight completely.

But instead of giving up on his dream of becoming a mountain guide, Steve went into overdrive, first climbing one of the world’s toughest ascents, then pedalling his way into ParalympicsGB and the Tokyo Games.

After taking gold in Rio and setting a new world record, Steve and his sighted co-pilot Adam Duggleby are hoping to repeat their success in Tokyo.
