SEAN YATES' TWO-DAY GARAGE SALE AUGUST BANK HOLIDAY
Here’s one for cycling fans: Sean Yates’s two-day garage sale!
The former Tour de France yellow jersey, now team director at Discovery Channel, whose Alberto Contador won the Tour this year, is having a clear out.
But don’t expect team jerseys.
“It’s mostly casual team clothing,” says Yates. “But it goes back 20 years. There’s the odd frame, wheels, chainrings, bits of kit.”
Yates was a pro for 15 years and rode 12 Tours de France. During that time he rode for four teams: Peugeot (1982-86), Fagor (1987-88), 7-Eleven (1989-90) and Motorola (1991-96).
The garage sale is on August Bank Holiday, Sunday 26 and Monday 27.
Location: Bryle Cottage, Tompsetts Bank, Forest Row, Sussex. Tel: 077382 69210.
