Athlete main content

Just five years since he began Cycling after being inspired by the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games, Ben won two gold medals at Tokyo 2020 in the Time Trial C3 and the Road Race C1-C3.

Time trial specialist Watson had already earned himself medals at three consecutive UCI Para-cycling Road World Championships.

After emerging through the ranks of the Great Britain Cycling Team set-up, Ben Watson has established himself as a regular contender for medals at road events in recent years.

Excellent results at world cups have been punctuated by world championship medals, the first of which was a silver in the time trial at his debut championships in Pietermaritzburg in 2017.

He followed that up with a bronze in Maniago in 2018, and replicated that achievement in Emmen in 2019.
