British rider Thomas Meinwill represent Tormans Cyclo Cross Team the next two winters. The 21 year old will join the UCI Cyclocross Team 15th of August for two cyclocross campaigns.
The rider of the Tarteletto-Isorex cross team performed well at the U23 World Cups this winter, but missed the final podium because of a mechanical during the final in Hoogerheide last Sunday. The British rider was the best at the World Cup in Tabor in November, and missed the podium in Koksijde one week later. He added a World Cup podium in Nommay two weeks ago.
A win at the Koppenberg cross showed already in the junior category that the Briton was cut out for cyclocross. The inhabitant of Newcastle finished 9th in his latest international championships, the U23 world and European championships in 2019 and is preparing to do better at the U23 world championships in Dübendorf in three weeks.
« I'm very happy with this new challenge with Tormans Cyclo Cross Team! This interesting change motivates me to set new goals. My base in Belgium is very close to the Tormans headquarters and to Quinten and Corné's home, so I can't wait to start learning from them and to benefit from the support from the team. But first, I want to perform at the U23 world championships in Dübendorf in three weeks! »
Jean-François Bourlart (general manager):
« We really want to develop the Tormans Cyclo Cross Team and therefore we're actively recruiting. Thomas Mein is a young and very promising rider, with already the World Cup in Tabor on his palmares. His profile is exactly what we're looking for to prepare the future with Tormans Cyclo Cross Team. »
