Tom Owens is no stranger to the international stage previously competed in the World Mountain Championships several times and place 4th in the World Trail Championships in 2015. After finishing 2nd in the Three Peaks race a couple of weeks ago his selection was confirmed this week to compete at Premana, Italy on August 6th. He will be joined by Murray Strain who beat him at the Three Peak race. Its worth noting Tom was well clear in this race but made a wrong turn and lost at least 5 minutes to Murray. Both of them are part of a very strong GB and hopefully will bring back some medals.
Congratulations to Tom on his selection
