Jesse’s Dad is legendary Tour de France cyclist Sean Yates so
it is no surprise that he’s a natural on the bike. Formally of Team Wiggins Jesse stopped riding professionally a number of years ago but he’s still loves time in the saddle especially now he has discovered gravel.
Last year he headed to Spain for Hutchinson Ranxo a 160 km gravel race across the barren landscape of the Pyrenees. “It’s
like the Wild West out there, and it doesn’t take any prisoners. I signed up to the race because I like riding gravel and racing and the gravel aspect is a bit
epic.” Said Jesse “The T47 took a beating. Unlike carbon bikes, it’s
bombproof, which is what you need when stones are flying everywhere.”
