One of only nine Britons to wear the yellow jersey in the Tour de France, Sean Yates burst onto the cycling scene as the rawest pure talent this country has ever seen.
After turning professional at the age of 22, he soon became known as a die-hard domestique, putting his body on the line for his teammates. His accolades include 1st at Tour of Belgium in 1989, National Road Champion in 1992 and Yellow Jersey holder in 1994.
Once retiring from racing Yates managed a number of teams culminating in 2009 as Director Sportif of the newly formed Team Sky. He spent three years as the team's lead presiding over amongst others, Bradley Wiggins' Tour de France victory.
His relationship with Reilly started in late 90’s when Mark secretly built him a bike. Over the years Sean has ridden Mark Reilly-crafted road, time trial and tandem frames. The relationship continued to grow with Sean one of the first to get delivery of Reilly Fusion, our titanium aero road bike.
