Pedal Medal

Our Tom recently claimed second place in the Forfar Funduro!

Tom podium edit

There was more than the two of them in the race… 3rd place had to run (we promise!)

Tom, who many of you will know as “that nice lad with the beard and the bikes”, recently took part (and came 2nd!) in the Forfar Funduro – a mountain bike race that takes place as part of the Angus Cycling Festival.

However, Tom almost didn’t make it to the race at all…

Just days before he was due to take part in the event, Tom crashed his bike and completely ruined the suspension, the frame, the handlebars, the crankset and the brakes on his bike (it was a pretty big crash!). So, after he escaped more or less unscathed from the incident we decided to lend Tom one of our mountain bikes from the Hub so that he could still take part… A risky move you say? Well, we’ve never been afraid of bold moves.

We’ve mentioned before about the fantastic range of Genesis bikes that are now available from the Hub and Tom did an excellent job of proving just how effective the bikes can be in the right hands.

Fancy getting some practice in for yourself? Take one of our bikes and try out the Knock mountain bike track that Tom helped to build! Or, if you fancy something a little less challenging, Tom has scoped out 3 fantastic different routes around the Hydro estate of varying difficulties. Just ask him about your options when you’re booking your bike and he’ll keep you on the right track
