Nick Gates (born 10 March 1972 in Sydney) is an Australian professional road bicycle racer.

In 1996 Gates won the Commonwealth Bank Classic[1] and the Australian national road race title.[2]

Gates twice competed in the Tour de France, riding for the Lotto-Domo team, but failed to finish either event, pulling out after the 15th stage in 2003[3] and after the first stage in 2004.[4]

His career ended with a fairytale victory in his self-named event, the Nick Gates Classic, in Townsville in 2008, where he won with the assistance of long-time teammate, Robbie McEwen.[5]

He is currently working for Team Saxo Bank-Tinkoff Bank where he is one of the team's directeurs sportifs.[6]
