‘The Smiling Assassin’
“Can you help hook up my young FMX ripper Tommy Rob bro, I have already given him some gloves and he is going to be massive and he’s he nicest kid in the world” – A text message from Aussie FMX legend Justin “bushy” Bush.
That is the first I had heard of Tommy Robinson, one of the Fish Fingered FMX crew from NSW I knew two things immediately –
1 – That he was obviously going to be a total ripper of a bloke.
2 – That he would shred on a dirt bike.
Fast forward to F1 in Melbourne this year, watching practice I could hear a few industry people who were in early for the event talking “who’s the kid in the all black?!… I have got no idea but he is killing it!!”
I guess both of those scenarios really describes Tommy the best, he is honestly one of the nicest people I have ever met and he lets his riding do the talking.
It’s dudes like Tommy that make what we do so worthwhile seeing the #FISTARMY kill it on the world stage is still so surreal to me and that is exactly what Tommy has been doing having. Tommy also just competed at XFighters in Madrid, landing his new world first body aerial now called the “twist top”.
Big things are happening for Tommy and they couldn’t happen to a more deserving legend.
I guess you can call this clip a ‘Welcome to the team’ that is 2 years late but hey good things come to those who wait right?!
Special mention to Benny from Headstrong films for killing it with the edit!
Smash Forth Tommy and thank you for flying the #FISTARMY flag.
