Late to road racing Jacob Hennessy from Cambridgeshire exploded on to the UK scene in 2016 riding for the Tifosi team. The 2017 season saw Jacob racing for the Great Britain U23 team where he took his biggest win to date winning the prestigious U23 Gent-Wevelgem before moving on to an opening stage victory at the A Travers les Hautes de France-Trophee Paris-Arras and fifth place overall.
2018 marks Jasob's final season in the U23 ranks, he brings big aims in to the season so watch for his performances across Europe! On the recent announcement of Jacob's joining the Mitchelton-Scott Development Team for 2018 he outlined his excitement:
“I’m super excited to be joining Mitchelton-SCOTT for the 2018 season. This year they have shown exactly how strong a team they are, especially with some of their riders moving up to the WorldTour next year and the success they have had in some big races. I would love to be able to follow that progression and this is a great place to try and do that. Obviously I want to win as many races as possible and to achieve that I need to be more consistent and the aim is to try and maintain good form and consistency from January through to October.”
