Elbry Sandland joins Thompson Bikes UK

Sorry for the lack of blogs, its been a big year, after the win at Bikefest we had a few weeks to recover and then get in shape for 24-12, racing as part of a team for Rocky Mountain in the 24 hour race, It went real well and we came home second. While on the road we went from Exeter to Lands end (130miles ) with a 20 mph av as part of the fight club team. The weekend after 24-12 we were again going without sleep, this time we were riding for 24 hours and a spot 305+ miles away from where we started!! This was my first outing for Thompson bikes on the road, we smashed it! since then we have been blasting out the road miles and helping with the Thompson road bike demos as they hit the UK shore, Im a big fan of the brand and the bikes it makes, so im super stoked to say i will be riding for Thompson on the road be it racing, adventure,training, sportives and much more in 2017! So its time to get in shape and we have now jumped in to the cross racing and got a 5th at my first race of the year, As for the Mountain biking im also pumped to say my deals done and im starting my 5th year as part of Rocky Mountain bicycles!! so i will be out crushing the trails, doing a range of racing and media and i cant wait to get up in the hills on my new team bike that lands next week! i will get a photo of that up here early next week so keep checking back!
