Tom Southam – Rapha-Condor Press Officer, Ex-Pro and Author

-

Tom Southam is a name that has been around for a while; it was 2000 when he took fifth in the British Time Trial Championship behind Chris Newton – with a certain Bradley Wiggins in seventh spot and Stephen Cummings in ninth place.

It seemed as if he was headed for the top – especially when he took second in the 2002 British Elite Road race Championship behind Julian Winn – but ahead of Jeremy Hunt and Roger Hammond who were third and fourth respectively.

He repeated the trick in the 2004 champs behind Hammond and was by now in the colours of Italian pro team Amore & Vita.

There were a number of solid top 20 finishes in UCI races that year, including 12th in the Tour du Finistere.
