Senior Mentor Squad
Tom remains a key mentor for the team in 2018. The father of Elite rider Luca Haines, Tom began cycling when he moved to Europe as a young journalist, looking towards the bike to help him become a faster marathon runner. Hours on the bike on multiple continents has led him to numerous famed climbs and roads, including the Col de la Columbiere in 2000 where he watched legendary Tour de France riders crest the summit en route to Morzine, France. He is an active journalist and current professor of journalism at the University of New Hampshire and will be traveling to Budapest, Hungary for the first half of 2018. He primarily competes in cyclocross and will be looking to crack into the top 10 in the masters categories when he returns to the United States.
