Pete's Profile

About Pete

Pete came up through British Cycling’s Olympic Programmes, specialising in the sprint disciplines at an international level before joining the para-cycling squad in November 2012 as a tandem pilot.

In the sprint, they set the world record in the qualifying flying 200m with a time of 9.711 seconds finally beating their Australian opponents 2-0 to take the victory and the world title.

In 2015, Pete and Neil retained their kilo and sprint titles at the UCI Para-cycling Track World Championships in Apeldoorn.

At the 2016 UCI Para-cycling Track World Championships Mitchell and Fachie dominated the tandem events, defending their kilo and sprint titles for the third year in a row.
