Tanner: Like Father, Like Son



You most probably know the name John Tanner (pictured below).  John is the  twice British Professional  road race champion who has been associated with planet x  since the early 90s . Back in the glory days of our road racing heritage John  formed the remarkable "Northern mafia" alongside teammate Mark Lovatt and  Wayne Randle . Together they  dominated top level British cycle racing for  many years  and helped secure our place in the  UK road cycling market  . 



John Tanner








Whilst John is still capable of performing at the highest level it is his son Jake that is now being tipped as a future star and this season will be further learning his trade in the cobbles , kermesses , and crosswinds of the Belgian pave .  Like father like son and so in   2012 we are happy to be supporting Jake and he will be putting his Planet X RT57 through its paces  in his Belgium team . 


We will be catching up with Jake  as his season unfolds 

Check out the bike that Jake Tanner will be thrashing around within an inch of its life

Here's the Planet X Carbon Clincher wheelset that he'll be rolling on. More than tough enough to deal with the Belgian cobbles
