Tom Stewart turning heads in the UK's domestic race scene

Tom Stewart

If there's one rider who has been turning heads on the British scene this season, it's Team Sportscover's Tom Stewart.

The 23-year-old, who is in the final few weeks of studying for a masters degree in civil engineering at Sheffield University, stormed on to domestic riders' radar screens when he rode to fourth place at the two-day Tour of the Reservoir Premier Calendar round, followed by 11th at the Lincoln Grand Prix.

"I got a few messages off people I've never spoken to before, saying ‘well done' or ‘good ride,'" said Stewart. "People like Pete Williams (IG-Sigma) and Rob Partridge (UK Youth); those kind of riders that I've got so much respect for and have looked up to. That means a lot."
