Rider Profile - Tom Culliford
The next rider we have a look into is TRS UK and BVM Moto sponsored, Tom Culliford. Still only nineteen years of age, Tom has competed in various ACU British Championship events for the past seven years. His best result was fourth overall in the Youth A class in 2015 when it was first incorporated with the main championship. In the same year Tom also competed in the FIM European Youth Cup and despite missing the opening round, still managed twelfth position at the end of the year.
An Air Conditioning Engineer by trade, Tom is currently leading the ACU Western Centre Championship after four rounds. Following in the family footsteps of his father, Pete, who has ridden Trials for many years, Tom favours the no stop sections with his favourite events being the Scottish and Scott Trials. Once again as a TRRS supported rider it comes as no surprise that his favourite rider is Adam Raga.
Consistency paid off for Tom at the opening Trial GB round this year when he posted three laps of eleven marks each to take seventh overall in the ACU Trial Expert Class. His goal for 2019 is to break into the top five at the end of the year after competing in the FIME Championship rounds in August.
