Podcast: Thomas Vanderham on His Career, Filming & More

Jul 15, 2019
by Mike Powell  

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.

 I still try to imitate him when I ride my bike, such a cool style man, but still after all these eyars I can not whip as good as him!

 The guy doing the podcast is he a robot? He seems like he has no personality

 Powell is legit. He's been showing love to mtb which has been awesome, but he gets it all. I think he's got personality, he's just more conscious of his vocabulary and demeanor than some. It made the Todd Richards episode that much better since they're both very aware of how they sound and what they say.

 @underhawk: I don't like it how he always talks about money and always asks the athletes how much they earn..
