It’s been a year since we last spoke to Jake Stewart, he’d just finished second in the u23 Gent-Wevelgem and taken third spot in the Italian Trofeo Piva; since then he’s been round the u23 ‘Peace Race,’ ridden the Ronde de L’Oise, Tour Alsace, Tour de L’Avenir, jumped ship on British Cycling programmes, joined the Equipe continentale Groupama-FDJ and already won a race in France.
We first came upon Jake at the Berlin Six Day in 2017 where he won the junior edition with Fred Wright; that year also saw him pick up medals on the track at junior National and European level.
Last season, as well as his road successes he was in the team which won the British Team Pursuit Championship.
But track medals, however well deserved, are one thing, road success on continental parcours is another…
Best ‘have another word’ with the 19 year-old Englishman.
A win already Jak
