Tom Leaper – Thrones team rider, former 2 times Giro rider, man with the legs of steel and all-round nice guy destroys the field at Sandown Criteriums on January 10th. It was a tough Melbourne night on the Sandown motor circuit where less than 20 riders finished A grade out of 45 starters.
Tom (riding for the Croydon Cycleworks team) featured in an early 3 man break with Andrew Stalder and Amir Rusli who held off the main field most of the night until they were joined with 4 laps to go by another dozen riders.
Tom was not content to roll around for the rest of the race, showed the benefits of some serious kms over the xmas break and broke away again to take out a solo win. Nice work Tom.
