Jacob Vaughan

Lotto Soudal U23
Dave Rayner Funded Since: 2018

Is the first time you have had support from the Dave Rayner Fund?

This is my first year being supported by the DRF. I can't wait to get stuck in to racing.

What team are you joining?

I'm riding for the Lotto Soudal U23 Development Team.

Tell us a bit about your team.

Lotto Soudal U23 is the feeder team/ development team for Lotto Soudal, the world tour team. It has a brilliant calendar and they look after us really well. It is a mainly Belgian team but has a good history with British riders such as James Shaw and Dan McLay.

What is your race programme looking like?

My race programme is really full. I will be trying all types of racing on different terrain and in different fields, from U23 to elite. I hope to be selected to race lots of UCI races with the team. However, when I’m not riding with the team I will be riding kermesses and pro kermesses in Belgium on my own.

Where are you going to live?


What bike will you be riding and who supplies the team kit?

I will be riding a Ridley Fenix SL with Campagnolo Record EPS and Campagnolo Bora wheels. The kit is supplied by Vermanc, helmets are HJC, the shoes are Gaerne and sunglasses are from Rudy Project.
