Jack Sheppard last made the trip to New Zealand in 2014. We are very fortunate that Jack takes the time to head out this way to share his knowledge.  Jack 2011 Youth world champion & former top world round rider. This year is the first year he has not ridden the world championship circuit to concentrate  more on riding in the UK British Championship.
Jack this year has had to do all his normal training on and off the bike as well working a full time job. It hasn’t seemed to have affected him to much with sitting in second position in the British Championship and taking a win a few weeks back over James Dabill.  Also a very good 4th position in this years Scottish Six Day Trial.

If you get the chance to see Jack ride or get to one of his training days you won’t be disappointed. Jack is really down to earth and always up for a chat. Truly just one of the good guys.
