Thomas Vanderham is a living legend in the world of freeride mountain biking and he’s a guy that doesn’t do many interviews. Over the past 20 years, he’s let his riding do the talking and his riding has said a lot. I was lucky to get an hour with Thomas and walk through his career... one that started when he was just 15 years old. We talk about how things came into place, sponsor changes, filming and a lot more. It’s another do not miss episode.
