Fit Bike Co.’s 9th day of the 12 days of Aitken takes a look back at Mike’s 50/50 BMX’s “That’s It” video!
It’s crazy how many amazing video parts Mike Aitken has had over the years. Today Fit Bike Co. had Matt Beringer and Shawn “Elf” Walters sit down and watch Mike’s section from the 50/50 BMX “That’s It” DVD. This was another step in the progression of Mike where he went to work on everything brakeless. This one has so many gnarly clips that he makes looks so effortless. Hit play!
“We’re 3/4 of the way through our ‘Twelve days of Aitken,’ which is a retrospective look at Mike Aitken’s BMX career as seen through the eyes of some of those who know him best via a selection of his hugely influential video parts, and what better part to kick off Day 9 than with Mikey’s epic “That’s It!” section.
2007’s Salt Lake City, Utah-based full-length video “That’s It!” was arguably one of the most progressive independent videos to date. And Mike’s section deservingly took the closing honors. The riding in this section is the epitome of his matured style and progression. Newly brakeless in many clips, he utterly lays waste of the SLC area streets, Beringer’s ramp, and Tanner trails. So many classic clips documented on his home turf; and as Shawn “Elf” Walters says, this is easily one of, if not the, best part Mike has made. -RD
