Rider Profile
Thomas Pevalin

Rider Profile: Thomas Pevalin
Thomas Pevalin is a young man with a passion for cycling! In 2011 at the age of eleven he joined his mother for the Becel Heart and Stroke Ride down the Don Valley Parkway in Toronto and the excitement of riding with over 12,000 riders changed his life! As he says, he rode the ride with his mother, until he dropped her!In 2012, just twelve years old, he convinced his mother Caroline to have them join the Oshawa Cycling Club. 2012 was also the year the OCC brought back Time Trials to the club, and after turning thirteen that July, he participated in his first club Time Trial. He would win the club Time Trial award in 2016 at the age of seventeen before taking his cycling to a whole new level. He has gone on to cycle and race in a number of countries throughout the world including the United States, the United Kingdom, France, Spain, Belgium, the Netherlands and even Australia. He won his first bike race in 2016 at the Ossington Crit, was the 2017 Ontario overall series junior crit champion and won the da vila Italia that sane year. Last summer he spent a couple months racing primarily in Belgium. We are proud to have Thomas in our cycling club and to have watched him mature from a young boy to mature adult and valued member of our club. Thomas wants it known that he wishes to thank everyone in the club for their support since he joined the club and it’s played an important role in his development as a cyclist. Thomas has been recruited to ride for Hamilton United for 2020.
