Jake started off his love for mountain bikes in Nantmawr quarry, riding bits of the downhill and all the dirt jumps. Jake started working in cycle shops back in 2005 and became a regular at the dirt jumps in Delamere Forest. He then decided to give downhill a go and the rest is history, competing in over 100 downhill races across the country and having had a lot of experience when it comes to fast and wild trails. Jake is also a fully qualified Cytech bicycle mechanic and wheel builder. It’s not all downhill for Jake, as he also owns a road bike and enjoys everything our local area has to offer. He even likes 29’ers, having owned a steel XC hardtail, he’s no stranger to the local XC trails.
