Jake started racing from a tender age, travelling around the country to compete against fellow youth riders in circuit races. Showing great promise and a passion for riding his bike, he also participated in one of the most prestigious youth events in Europe – the Assen Youth Tour in Holland, something many youth riders (and their parents) strive to compete in today.
He performed extremely well as a youth and junior rider, taking wins at Elite level races whilst racing on junior (restricted) gears. Jake has also won many National level races where he has competed against National, World and Olympic champions. With a natural gift of being able to read any race he’s proven time and again to be one to watch in any race situation.

Jake raced professionally for the UCI Team IG Sigma Sport in the 2012 and 2013 seasons which gave him great insight into the higher echelons of British and UCI cycle races. He marked himself out as a criterium specialist for the team and found himself selected for most of the televised Circuit Series – The Tour Series.

In 2017 he not only scored an amazing 21 race wins, he also placed second in the British Cycling Elite Rankings, behind current World Tour Professional Harry Tanfield. Jake won such races as the Pirelli Supercrit, held at the Birmingham NEC Cycle Show, and the John/Dulcie Walker Memorial races (taking two big race wins in two days). He was also a part of the Team line up that took 1-2-3-4-5-7-9 at the Doltcini Classic.

Jake received a Degree in Sports Science from the University of Bedfordshire, completing his dissertation into “Ergogenic Aids For Improving Cycling Performance”. He continued his studies and went on to gain a Master’s Degree in Elite Sporting Performance with his thesis on “Markers for Over-training In Athletes”.

He has 10 years of coaching experience to his name including being the named coach for the Elite amateur Spirit Racing Team since 2015, who have found themselves on the podium over 200 times.

Our Head Coach is looking forward to the opportunity to impart his knowledge to the athletes of RideRevolution.
