Find out where it all started for Tommy G
In May this year, Anthill Films dropped ‘The Legend of Tommy G’.
Epic in every sense of the word- the edit features Tommy doing what he does best- throwing huge shapes on every bike in his stable.
Shot on location at the insane Bike Kingdom
, Lenzerheide, the combination of camera work, riding skills and creativity has been recognised by one of the mainstays of action sports movies- receiving a nomination for the Banff Centre Mountain Film Festival, happening this week.

Tommy’s determination brought him through what could be described as a quiet childhood to an incredible win at Crankworx Joyride in 2012, just weeks after his first ever Crankworx event.
Since then things have gotten bigger for Tommy- the terrain, the jumps, the bikes.What does Tommy ride?
Competing at the iconic Red Bull Rampage since 2012, Tommy’s Canyon Senders
in recent years have been put through the ringer. Now focussed on making his Rampage bike burly enough for the biggest hits, but shaving weight where he can, so he can pull the biggest tricks
Never far from Tommy’s side is his Stitched hardtail. Playing a part in the development of the current Stitched, and still the bike which sees the most action day to day. It’s the bike where the work gets done, and the new tricks get dialled in.
The Torque is there as the in-between option. When it’s a day to leave the hardtail at home, and hit some monster jumps, or smash some bikepark laps with the crew- the Torque is the go to.
Don’t forget to head over to the Film Festival
to check out the full edit.
