Steele Bishop was a youngster with a dream who rode a long and tough road to becoming a world champion cyclist.

An Olympian at 19, he retired at 21 – only to return to racing and eventually become world champion at 30. The individual pursuit is a race where you break or are broken. To win the title is a test of both physical and mental strength. For more than 30 years, his approach to the preparation and competition has inspired both elite and recreational cyclists – and now for the first time Steele shares his unique Australian Story. From country boy to world champion, the story of Steel Bishop will inspire sportspeople, business leaders and a whole generation to follow.

Steele Bishop was born in 1953 in the hill district of Kalamunda, 35 minutes east of Perth, Western Australia. As the youngest of four children, his brother introduced him to the perils and fun of riding a bicycle. Despite loving and playing all sports, he couldn’t shake the passion of riding a bike, and after winning his first State championship at 15 years old, he abandoned all other sports to concentrate on becoming “the best cyclist in the world”.
