The 12 Days of Mike Aitken continues! This time around Brian Foster and Van Homan watch Mikey’s “Fit Life” part…
Fit Bike Co. dropped the 8th day of the 12 Days of Mike Aitken and this time we get some perspective from Brian Foster and Van Homan on Mike’s “Fit Life” part that really showed Mikey’s ability to destroy street spots and random spots like water parks! Hit play!
“With Day 8 in 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, we focus on “FIT Life”, which was released in 2007.
Six years after it’s inception, FIT was well-established, and Mikey was at the upper echelon of FIT’s well-assembled dream team of this era. In “FIT Life”, Mike’s part took on a more street-focused tone, and his display of power, speed and style had reached a pinnacle, as he continued to push the boundaries of his riding. Fellow teammates and legends Brian Foster and Van Homan provide some entertaining commentary about peg-less Mike, bro-cam footage, and the freecoaster generation. -RD
