He's definitely one to watch as he did start his outdoor season with some major top results. On Sunday Gilles Thomas impressed in Madrid and is now ready to tackle St Tropez.
A delighted Thomas said: "I was not expecting to finish the weekend like this. Having the opportunity to ride at these shows against the world’s best at a young age, due to being a U25 rider for a GCL team, is amazing. It’s given me a fantastic platform to make a step up in my career and winning today is great!"
Calleryama was jumping amazing and she has a huge stride which helps in this grass arena. It is an amazing atmosphere here, like in Mexico, so many people are here - this is real sport!"
Currently sitting third in the overall Longines Global Champions Tour ranking, Thomas then added: "This is my third event of the Global (LGCT) season and all three have been very good. Next week I go to St Tropez as well, so I hope for a good result and I can move up in the rankings."
