La Velocita’s Kirra McDonald spoke with Tom to find out why he loves to ride!
Name - Tom Freeman
Lives – Adelaide
Dream bike - 2011 Giant TCR Advanced SL - RABOBANK Colours
Favourite local ride - Any where with good mates and a good coffee at some stage will make my day better than it was going to be. If there is a kick ass descent that we can hit flat out and roll some turns while trying to kill each other that would be good too.
My current cycling goal is – The winter cross season is round the corner, I’d love to head over to Melbourne and race really well in B grade there.
When I am on the bike… like to look at my shoe and sock combo as it goes round and round in circles!
How did your love for bikes come about - Lance. I started watching the Tour de France in 2005 for Lance's final assault on the Yellow Jersey. I was hooked after that.
Share a cycling memory - The greatest pleasure I have had with cycling is watching my son race BMX. He loves it and is so determined. Seeing him take advice and apply it literally to the next race and see results is truly amazing.
I love to ride because… It’s better than running. Running sucks and has heaps less cool stuff to buy and look at on the Internet!
