Following "Open Mind", i nwhich we saw him riding street on the new Combo 24", here’s a new video of TMS boss Thibaut Marriaux in showman mode, filmed at a show with Florian Tournier in Epinal. Florien has been concentrating on show riding and developping the TMS lately and has also fallen for 24" - he’ll soon be riding the Evo 3 S with 24" wheels!

The video itself isn’t anything very special, but it was filmed a week ago, just a week after Tibo had undergone a fairly major surgical operation on his brain. Less than ten days after this operation Tibo was back on his bike and riding shows on his Combo again! He is still undergoing treatment, but is mentally on top form. It just goes to show that no matter how healthy you may be, anyone can suffer from health problems, but also that will power and passion can be just as effective as any medication or treatment.
