Athlete Introduction — Tom Mazzone 

Elite Bike Racer


Hailing from that hotbed of cycling, the Isle of Man, Tom Mazzone is a former professional bike racer embarking on a new journey as a gravel racer. Having competed twice at the Commonwealth Games, the Tour of Britain, Tour of Yorkshire and countless Elite level races Tom knows what it takes to perform at the highest level. 

We are excited to support Tom as he embarks on this next stage of his career with the aim of reaching the Gravel World Championships in Leuven in October.


“When the opportunity arose to collaborate with one of the world-leading, innovative and sustainable technical performance wear brands, it was an obvious decision”


We knew Tom had been using our baselayers during his racing career, putting them through their paces in the harsh conditions of early season Belgian races and the domestic calendar. When we learned of his ambition to convert to a gravel pro and compete at the Worlds, we jumped at the chance to support him. 

With a race calendar including Worthersee in Austria, The Gralloch in Scotland and World Series events in the UK and Europe Tom will  rely on his kit to help him perform his best. Our focus is on promoting performance through comfort; the better you feel on the bike the better you will perform. From protecting from the elements in winter to temperature regulation in the warmer months, our garments are designed to help you be at your best. 

“Having used and been impressed by Megmeister products earlier in my career, when the opportunity arose to collaborate with one of the world-leading, innovative and sustainable technical performance wear brands, it was an obvious decision.” Tom told us.  “I look forward contributing to the further development and success of Megmeister cycling kit, whilst using their state-of-the-art materials and technologies during my racing and training”.

We wish Tom all the best and are excited to have him on board as a Megmeister athlete. Follow Tom on instagram as he embarks on the exciting next chapter of his career. Meanwhile, find out more about Tom with our Quickfire Questions. 


Quickfire Questions 


What is your favourite time of day, and why?

I’m an early riser and love a sunrise so I’d have to say, first thing in the morning.


If you could eliminate one thing from your daily routine, what would it be?

Can I say work? Haha. Other than that, I’d probably say cleaning my bike, at the moment. Through the winter months, it’s never-ending.


What is your favourite race/competition/event? 

That’s a tough one. Having competed in a couple of Commonwealth Games now, it is always a pretty special atmosphere and experience representing the Isle of Man on the world stage, so I’d say that’s my favourite to race.

I love watching racing too, the classics such as Tour of Flanders, Paris-Roubaix, and Strade Bianche are always exciting. Apart from cycling, I am an avid follower of MotoGP too.


What is the one item that you always take away on a trip with you?

There are always a few things I can’t seem to go without. To name a few, when travelling I always like to listen to music so headphones are a must, I have also got into a bit of a habit of bringing an aeropress too, for my morning coffee.


If you had to eat one meal every day for the rest of your life, what would it be?

That’s a tough one, I love food! Let’s go Italian, only if it’s three-courses, Bruschetta, Pizza, and Tiramisu.


Where is your favourite place to do sport? 

If I’m outside, I’m usually happy, especially if the sun is shining. One of my favourite places to ride is back home on the Isle of Man. 


If you could live anywhere in the world for a year, where would it be?

I was lucky enough to spend some time in Switzerland last year, I don’t think I’d ever get bored of it there, although my bank balance wouldn’t appreciate it as much!


Where’s the strangest/most interesting/most unusual place you’ve ever woken up?

One of the few that spring to mind from many years ago is my

friend’s garden shed. Yes, alcohol was involved!
