From the dirt tracks of Bendigo to the paved mountains of Europe, Jack Haig has trended a quick path towards the top level of professional cycling – all with a smile on his face.
Jack, a country Victorian in character and heart, began his cycling journey on the mountain bike. Crowned as u23 National Champion in that discipline, it was with the Tasmanian Avanti Racing Team that he was tempted into racing on the road. Although Jack is naturally friendly and easy going, his approach to cycling is meticulous and determined – he is constantly refining his approach to training, diet and racing. This precise methodology has seen Jack rise through the ranks from the National Road Series with Avanti Racing, onto the Australian u23 National Team in Europe and then to the World Tour with Orica-SCOTT.
In the professional ranks, Jack has continued to shine and make progress with an appearance in the Vuelta a Espana in his debut year. In 2017, he had an emphatic solo victory for his first professional win in the Tour of Poland, confirming his talent and hard work. A return to the Vuelta a Espana a second time in 2017 has seen Jack step it up once again, being a key support for the GC contenders in the mountains.
Jack may love numbers and data when it comes to training and racing, but his talents also are found in kitchen with a real passion for baking. You’ll see banana breads, training cakes and all manner of creations across Jack’s social media as he trains in his European home base of Andorra. Jack has taken on the full experience of living in Europe, enjoying the culture and scenery of his home Andorra and the surrounding Spanish regions. You may even see Jack head out in the snow in the off-season, getting plenty of ‘cross’ training under his belt!
With two very solid professional seasons behind him, we can’t wait to see what Jack accomplishes next.
