British Champs Rider Bio - Tony Jones

Here's we've got Tony, another one of the guys from the Leslie Bikeshop - there are just so many of them! Tony competes in the Veteran category - don't let the name fool you, these are some of the most competitive racers of the day and are extremely fast! For a first timer at the British level events the Champs will be a great experience for Tony and make sure that you're part of that! Get along and cheer him on and support him - he's another one in the red, black and white of Leslie Bikeshop. He's going to do his team and the SXC proud and give it his all, and probably spend the rest of the day with a smile on his face - he's a really friendly guy at races. Give him a good cheer as he goes past!
