For a guy that only started dabbling in cycling in 2009 at the age of 22 whilst doing rehab for some broken bones in his feet, and only infrequently once he got back to playing rugby, he has come along way. His real cycling career began when he started riding more after he finished playing rugby at the end of the 2010 season, and has lead him to a contract to ride the US and canadian national road circuit.

This episode takes a look at the factors that go into being a successful racer. From the importance of a solid work ethic, to finding your natural strengths, and understanding what drives you to succeed.

Here’s What You’ll Discover:
  • What is the difference between racing in Australia and the US.

  • How ex-pro and DS Scott Sunderland has influenced Jake’s riding.
