GCN’s own young-gun Swiss-Army-Knife of a rider
Prior to joining GCN in 2013, Tom – aka ‘The Brick’ – raced professionally for three years with Sigma Sport (later IG Sigma Sport), alongside Simon Richardson and, for his final year, Dan Lloyd. During his career he finished the Tour of Britain twice and raced at other high level races, notably in France and the US.
Before starting life on the road in 2008 Tom focussed primarily on cyclo cross – representing Great Britain at the ‘cross Worlds more than once – and is also a former mountain bike Junior National Champion.
Prodigious talent on two wheels runs in the family: his sister is British Olympian and cross-country mountain bike World Cup racer, Annie Last, who Tom can take all the credit for by making a bet that saw Annie tackle her first race – sowing the seed for her future successes.
But what really secured Tom’s position on the GCN team was his highly relevant degree in History and Economics from Newcastle University, UK: he’s the only GCN presenter who can count.
