Neil Fachie is a long-standing member of the Great Britain Cycling Team. Neil is a 2012 Paralympic champion and reigning world champion and tandem kilo world record holder.
A track and field athlete at his debut Paralympics, Neil made the switch to track cycling in time for the London Games four years later winning gold and silver in the tandem B events, for athletes with a visual impairment.
It is an area in which the Scotsman has proved dominant, winning 14 gold medals at UCI Para-cycling Track World Championships between 2009 and 2020 in the tandem B kilo and sprint disciplines. Neil also added another Paralympic medal to his collection in 2016, winning silver in Rio. Neil's book 'Earn Your Stripes – Gold Medal Insights for Business and Life' is out now.
