Steve Rider
Steve Rider joined BBC Sport in July 1985.

After spending six years presenting Sportsnight, Steve moved over to his current job as the main presenter of Grandstand, succeeding Desmond Lynam.

In October 1998, he presented Grandstand's special 40th birthday edition from Ascot Racecourse.

Among the major sporting events Steve has worked on for the BBC are several Summer and Winter Olympic Games, including the recent Sydney Games, as well as Commonwealth Games.

He is also the frontman for the BBC's golf and motorsport coverage, and his role with Grandstand involves presenting prestigious events such as rugby union's Six Nations Championship.

A regular co-presenter of the BBC Sports Review of the Year - he first fronted the show with Des Lynam in 1986 - Steve plays golf and has a keen interest in motor racing, particularly the British Touring Car Championship.

Steve lives in Berkshire with his wife and two children. He is a life-long supporter of Charlton Athletic FC, but tries not to let it show during Final Score!
