Tom is a first year Under-23 rider having just made the big jump up from the Junior category. It's a tough category to find your feet in and Tom is certainly showing the guts and determination required to succeed in this tough field. He's racing in the Elite category in Scotland and Britain, tho will be taking on fellow young'uns at the British Championships when he sets off at 3pm on Sunday afternoon.
Good luck Tom - Smash it!!
