Shaun Tyson “This move has given me a renewed enthusiasm, I already know and train with many of the team who are based in the North East, and I get just as much satisfaction providing guidance and seeing the young riders progress as I do winning races myself.
it’s great to be working with Jack again after seeing him rise from a junior himself, and I’m really looking forward to the 2019 season.”
Jack Rees, Team Owner, added; “Thomas has shown a tremendous amount of potential, with the support of the team and guidance we can provide I am confident he will make a real impact in 2019. I want to take this opportunity to thank GS Metro for their support and contribution to Thomas development.
The addition of Shaun is important, I have known Shaun for over fifteen years and he provided invaluable guidance to me during my first years in the sport. I am sure he will do the same to our young riders and I hope this role is able to give him renewed motivation to continue to compete at the high level he is capable of.”
