Kate Bates joins Pitcher Partners team

Current world track champion Kate Bates will ride with her team, Pitcher Partner, in the "Around the Bay in a Day" on Sunday, October 21.

Kate has recently returned to Australia from her triumph in Mallorca, Spain, where she took out the World Track Championships Points Race. After the "Around the Bay in Day" she will be heading up to the Pitcher Partners Women's elite team for the Jayco Cycling Classic in January 2008.

Pitcher Partners will have a combined team of 75, including staff, partners and clients, competing in the various distances around the Bay.

Kate's involvement with Pitcher Partners over the summer is part of the firm's support for her as she prepares for the Beijing Olympics in 2008. Kate is studying to be an accountant, in anticipation of the days after her career. –Riding for Pitcher Partners, an accounting firm, seems a natural fit.
