Team UK Youth's Year 2013


The Pearl iZumi Tour Series


You don’t get to be the number 2 team in Great Britain without a whole lot of hard work, commitment and dedication. Not only did Le Col founder Yanto Barker Captain Team Youth UK in their most successful year ever, he was instrumental in their success winning the UCS Ipswich, Coastal Grand Prix, Suffolk and two other individual rounds in the 2013 Pearl Izumi Tour Series.

Naturally Team UK Youth wore Le Col but Barker also worked closely with Nigel Mansell and the team’s management designing race strategies. As Captain he developed a close relationship with the team’s coach and helped manage each rider before, during and after each race to ensure everyone competed at their best, both mentally and physically.


Yanto Barker has also developed his own collection of Mens and Womens Cycling Apparel, the Team Kit is also available to purchase for fans of the Team UK Youth. Check out the latest collection.
