For this episode I am joined by young British road rider Jack Rootkin-Gray.
After seeing Solihull Cycling Club training in his local park, Jack found a love of cycling, joining the club and starting to ride and race with them.
As a youth rider Jack enjoyed some strong results including 2nd in the GC in the Youth Isle of Man stage race and winning National titles on the Track.
Jack progressed as a Junior and competed in more races in the UK and Europe and became part of the GB Junior Academy.
Jack had some difficult times on the bike as he progressed through his time as a Junior and into Under 23 and stepped away for a while to take a break from training and racing. He returned much happier and his love of being on the bike has really shown in his progress with UCI Continental Team Saint Piran.
Over the last year Jack has raced in 2 Tour of Britain's, won and podiumed in multiple British National races, finished 4th in the Under 23 Road World Championships and took his first International win in Norway.
Jack has recently announced that he will be moving to World Tour team EF Education-Easy Post for 2024 and I'm so excited to see how he progresses at World Tour level.
