Thornton Chartered Financial Planners are proud to sponsor Manx Professional Cyclist Tom Mazzone. Here is Tom’s February 2023 update:
For 2023, I have re-signed with the Saint Piran team for another year and after a tough end to the year in 2022, due to injury and illness, I am excited to get back on the start line in good health and condition early next month.
My first race of the year will be “Ster van Zwolle”, which is also Round 1 of the Holland Cup and one of my overall targets for the season over the six rounds. Before that, with the questionable weather in Europe at the moment, it made more sense for me to come back home to the Isle of Man and do my final block of race preparation training on roads I’ve ridden my whole life.
There is always something special about training here, not to mention it’s pretty tough with the terrain and grippy roads, especially when the wind is blowing, perfect preparation for what will be waiting for me in March. I’ll be making the most of my time on the Island and then counting down the days to the start of the season.
