Tom Davies is one of Wales' fastest riders. He has been off the racing scene for a few years but can always be found in the woods shredding hard! If you've witnessed his style on a mountain bike you'll know what a treat you're in for.

 I'm not fast, or particularly good at riding bikes in general, but I'm worried that if I filmed myself, this is what I'd look like (but slower). So stiff and uncomfortable looking. The difference between this and a clip like Remy Morton's Sound of Speed is alarming. So smooth and loose. It just goes to show that competency on a bike doesn't necessarily make for enjoyable content. Not trying to knock this dudes style, it's just not what I prefer to watch.

 He is a very talented rider for sure. The difference between him and a top pro is he looks close to crashing out any second, while pros like Sam Hill are smooth, controlled and fast as fuck!

 Speed warp in editing can make some things look very fast, or maybe it because he's riding a geometron Sik shredding Tom

 This man is low on the bike. I rode like that by accident once and my spleen began a relationship with my headset that I was very much against

 Thats's a bold claim considering the back half of the WC field most people never heard of? But he's a ripper nonetheless

 Every community has one. There are still people in this world who just ride bikes without caring for the multitude of personal media broadcasting tools that many live vicariously by.

 His style is just like Vergier/Bruni....strong core, deep squat etc.

 Shredder for sure but I've seen him around and his haircut is worse than mine... Also, I don't rate him as highly as this other Clart I know - Matty Davies. Again, terrible haircut but shreds the gnar out of it ????

 Every time I see Tom Davies, I see Tim Davis, British MTB legend. Where are you now Tim?
