Rider profile

Jesse Yates born in 1996 grew up in Sussex surrounded by bikes. In 2014 the focus became road and competition.

Spurred on by rapid promotion to 3rd cat and a top ten in a junior national time trial he began seriously competing in 2015.

Quickly gaining 2nd cat and winning a number of regionals and gaining numerous top tens representing In Gear Quickvit cc and coached by TrainSharp Cycle Coaching.

Jesse then looked abroad for the next stage in his career visiting family friend Tony Mills in France. He raced the GP Lorient, La Pluvignoise, and Noyal-sur-Vilaine and was noticed by the local teams.

Gaining support from the Dave Rayner fund, Jesse chose to stay in Brittany, France to develop his racing career with the Hennebont Cyclisme.

“Living away from home allows me to concentrate on cycling 100%, the roads are better, and there are more races with less travel.”

In his first full season in France, 2016 was a year of learning. Cobbles, stage racing, positioning and avoiding crashes in tougher and tougher races. Unfortunately a few crashes ensued and injuries prevented finishing the season the way he hoped.

In 2017 Jesse continued to work with TrainSharp and Hennebont Cyclisme racing in France
