Tom Pagès, who was the surprise star of the 2012 season and in the battle for the World Tour title right up to the finals, came to the competitive scene in 2007 as a new upcoming youngster with a mindset and determination to take the FMX to the next level. Within just a couple of years in the FMX circus, the talented Frenchman had worked his way from his own backyard up to fight against the best FMX riders in the world before he then vanished from the Red Bull X-Fighters Tour in 2009.
Pagès was the first rider ever to stick a double grab flip to dirt and this is just one of the tricks he has in his box. The stylish rider has a rich arsenal of tricks, which made it very challenging for the other riders to beat him, but following the accidents of some of his close friends and injuries of his own he decided to take a break from riding the big contests and instead focus more on freeriding and movie shooting.
