Thom quoted:

Super happy to win on the GPDH this weekend! The organisation was top quality and the track was really great to race on.

I spent an amazing season and would like to especially thank all the people who helped me and trusted me and that in 2017 I competed in the best possible condition. Thank you all, partners, friends, family and all the people who are behind me close or far!

I had the huge chance to participate in two World cups with the French team, I have never had so much fun on my bike and I am currently very happy!

The Autumn is beautiful and now my season is over I’m back to the slopes to ski.  If I had been told what was to occur at the beginning of the season I think I wouldn’t have believed it!
