Fist Handwear | Tom Robinson 'The Smiling Assassin'

» Tuesday, 19 July 2016 15:03

Tom Robinson has been on an incredible charge over the last few months. From showing his skill here in Australian soil to landing himself in the X-Fighters, Tom is only gaining momentum and it is going to be exciting to see him charge forward. 

Fist Handwear owner, Sam Moore, has this to say about Tom:

“Can you help hook up my young FMX ripper Tommy Rob bro, I have already given him some gloves, he is going to be massive and he’s he nicest kid in the world” read 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 and 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 describe Tommy well, 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. Tommy also just competed at X-Fighters in Madrid, landing his new world first body varial 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!
