Episode 4 of the podcast sees me sit down with Jacob Roberts in the highly glamourous surroundings of a wet and rainy retail park in Preston! Jacob has taken the different route with his racing this year by forming his own one man set up. Sourcing sponsors, employing trainers, raising funds and doing it all outside the confines of a regular team to have things exactly the way he wants them. No one in the UK Elite class is doing it the way he is so I wanted to get the lowdown on why he is doing what he is doing, his struggles to cover from multiple career threatening injuries over the last two years, and what he’s do if he was ever invited back into the Team GB structure.
