Danny Pate announces retirement from cycling

After 19 years of plying the pro cycling trade in the US and Europe, 39-year-old Danny Pate has decided to bring down the curtains on his racing career. Pate signed his first pro contract in 2000 with the Italian Saeco team and is currently riding with Rally Cycling at the Colorado Classic. Today`s last stage of the Colorado race marks Pate`s final day of competition, but the veteran rider from Colorado was typically understated when contemplating the end of his career. `I feel like right now it`s not really a big deal to me, but maybe it will be at some point,` Pate told Cyclingnews Saturday evening at the team`s hotel. `It will probably feel more strange come November and December when I don`t have to train again, when I don`t have to prepare for the next thing or the next season.ADVERTISEMENT `But right now, it doesn`t feel much different. It`s not something I`ve been planning for a long time or something I`ve been thinking about, so I`m not dreading it or rejoicing.` Pate was one of the most promising talents emerging from the US when he signed with Saeco in 2000, but his tenure with the team was not productive, and he returned to the US to embark on a career that would eventually see him back in Europe on some of the world`s top teams. After winning the US junior cyclo-cross title in 1997 and the U23 road race championship in 1998, Pate signed Saeco as a spry 20-year-old, returning to the US the following year with Prime Alliance and then going on to win the U23 World Championship time trial in 2001.
