According to Paul de Jong, the Dutch Bmx legend, owner of Paul´s Boutique Bmx and Tom´s mentor, its rare that a rider from The Netherlands enters the scene blessed with such talent. Tom happened to be that rare guy, born and raised in the south Brabant area of Holland, with the stomping grounds of the infamous FatJam Suggar Hills. Tom has a talent to combine the jaw-dropping tricks and mix them with his effortless siganture style. After entering some international events, such as the VANS Bmx Pro Cups, or Simple Sessions, his name is up in the ranks with many other unique riders on the planet. He´s currently working on a NBD trick that has been haunting him for a while - and he´s determined to land it very soon.
