 Steeeeeeeeeeeezzzzzzzzzyyyyyyyyyyyy!!!!!!!!

Double grab super stretched superseater, decade, 3 double whip, bar whip 3 & a nice clean nac all in one vid? You win Thomas, and you deserved it at Crankworx too. I always like watching you ride. Your combos kick ass.

 I was thinking that maybe all the guys that were supposed to win Crankworx crashed out and instead this guy won. I'm slowly realizing I was wrong.

 So much clean stuff being pulled right there. Thomas has a great style, kind of reminds me of Mr. Martin Söderström, but he's no copy of "the machine" Smile

 Pubesy! What a gun.

He is obviously an awesome rider, no doubt about it. And I admit. All I've seen of him has been his Crankworx (both events) sessions.

Was he always throwing tricks like this?
Or has his (some might say) surprise win in Whistler made him think. "I better step my sh*t up ASAYesterday"?

Still, sick video. SOLID edit. It seemed like a change from the wave or 'slow motion' edits that plague the internet!

 He was pulling cracy tricks earlier. Watch him at 26trix this May: www.pinkbike.com/video/259860

 I love the way this is edited! he deserved that joyride win for sure, look at this guys talent!
  • + 1
 the fact that there was nobody cheering and just silence with the music was killer. He sure can ride bikes. A few years from now he will be riding huge mountains like the Claw

 What was that powder + fire they used on the jumps ?
  • + 2
 Portland cement i would guess, not sure of the fire normally a mist of water and pack the $&@"@ out of it makes it good and firm
