Biography

Danny Pate

Danny Pate (born March 23, 1979) is an American retired professional bicycle racer, who competed professionally between 2000 and 2018 for the Saeco Macchine per Caffè–Valli & Valli, Prime Alliance, Health Net–Maxxis, Jelly Belly–Pool Gel, Garmin–Transitions, HTC–Highroad, Team Sky and Rally Cycling teams.

Born in Colorado Springs, Colorado, Pate competed in road racing, cyclo-cross and mountain bike racing.

Pate road in both the Giro d'Italia as well as the Tour de France with his best individual performances being a 3rd place finish on stage 18 of the 2009 Giro and then during the 2008 Tour de France he got involved in what ended up being a 171km breakaway during stage 15, which by far resulted in the most television coverage of his career. Four riders initially broke free and benefited from multiple crashes that allowed the escape group to build a gap of over fifteen minutes. Later in the day as the battle for the Maillot Jaune heated up behind them the gap dropped considerably and one of the breakaway riders eventually cracked leaving only Pate, Egoi Martinez and Simon Gerrans. As Pate led the trio under the flame rouge commentator Phil Liggett noted how Pate had looked cooked for the last 100 kilometers but was now leading the three riders home. In the final sprint Gerrans took the stage with Martinez in 2nd as Pate sat up and fell back a few seconds to claim the only Tour de France stage podium of his career.

In October 2015 the UCI Continental team, then named Optum–Kelly Benefit Strategies, announced that Pate would join them for the 2016 season after four years with Team Sky, reuniting him with former Prime Alliance teammate and Optum performance director Jonas Carney. He retired from racing at the 2018 Colorado Classic, after finishing the last stage in Denver.
