Tom Cardy is a force to be reckoned with on the bike – he oozes with style and skill and has learnt some seriously impressive moves. We recently made the trip to his home town and stomping ground, Chelmsford in Essex, to check out exactly what he’s capable of – and we were very impressed! Grab a copy of issue 347 of the mag to read the full feature, but in the meantime check out his mad skills for yourselves:

Alex started racing downhill at the tender age of 11, later going on to compete internationally representing the UK. At 19, he moved to the Alps to pursue a career as a bike bum clocking up moon-mileage riding the famous tracks in and around Morzine, France. In that time, he broke more bikes than he can remember. Alex then moved back to the UK when he landed a job working for Mountain Biking UK as their Features Editor — BikeRadar's sister title — as their features editor. Since working for MBUK, Alex's focus has moved to towards bike tech and he now wants to find out what bikes and components represent the best value for money regardless of discipline. Alex's current fleet includes his trusty commuter bike, a 2017 Marin Gestalt 3, his long term Orange Stage 6 RS enduro bike, a used and abused 2015 GT Sanction Pro, a Scott Voltage YZ dirt jump bike and a Deluxe Pro 2 BMX.
