Back competing in the UK after first retiring and then making a comeback Down Under, Tom Southam was caught here at the Eddy Soens Handicap at Aintree.
Proving that the new range of Boardman bikes are up to the task, he finished comfortably in the lead group.
When the Southam-Rob Hayles train gets going later in the season, there?s no telling what damage they could do to the rest of the Premier Calendar field.
At £1,399 for the bike, Southam shows that you don?t have to spend the earth to get a bike capable of performing at the top level ? he?s only changed the saddle, stem and tyres from standard.
Southam is one of only two male riders on the Halfords Bikehut team. He and Rob Hayles are outnumbered five to one by the women!
