Tom started racing cycle speedway at the age of 5, having been was introduced to the sport by his father, Mark Reed who was also a successful rider. Tom signed for Poole in 2008 and made an immediate impact in the premier league notching big scores and taking notable scalps. Last year he travelled to Adelaide, for the Junior World Championships where he finished 7th - the highest ranked GB rider. He has won many British titles in his young career including the British U.16 and U.19 titles, and the national U.16 indoor titles. Tom also rides for his local club Exeter in the South West league, where he has competed ever since he took up the sport. Tom says his favourite tracks are Poole and East Park plus - of course - his home town circuit, Exeter. Tom looks up to the likes of Gavin Wheeler, Lee Aris, Daniel Pudney, for the effort they give and for their commitment they give to their clubs, as well as their high standards in the sport. The Junior World title is now well within his sites and he would dearly like to add it to his impressive list of accomplishments.
