Julian Thrasher departs ATG for Shimano tech role at Madison

Julian Thrasher, a 15-year veteran of the ATG’s cycle training business, is to leave to take a new role at distributor Madison.

Having trained up a significant chunk of the trade’s mechanics, Thrasher has been instrumental in developing the Cytech course catalogue under the roof of ATG’s Aylesbury, and most recently, new state-of-the-art Oxford facility.

A regular tech columnist with CyclingIndustry.News, Thrasher’s leave no stone unturned approach to teaching will now benefit the Madison Shimano Technical team.

Offering advice to new mechanics coming through the trade Thrasher said: “Be open to advice. No one knows everything and adopting that mindset will be severely limiting in the future when it comes to working on new products.”

Meanwhile, at ATG courses will continue to be run by Mike Sullivan.

The ACT has an interview with Julian that discusses his time training up the trade and plenty more.

Courses at the ATG can be booked in by calling 01865 550 324, or by emailing cycles@activatelearning.ac.uk.
