Max Gaertig recently spent some time in Portland, Oregon getting plenty of riding time in. While he was there, he was able to film a ton of clips as well as get a few clips of Chester Blacksmith, Marcas Grubbs and Codie Larsen for this new Wethepeople edit! So damn good. Check it!
One of the coolest things about BMX is that you don’t even need to understand what somebody is saying to know exactly what they are talking about. For example, this video of Wethepeople‘s Vigh Barna who explains the battle he had with a massive over icepick grind. What a beast.
It looks like some of the Wethepeople team will be up in Washington July 8th through the 12th. So if you are near any of those stops make sure you get there!
How has this edit of Pablo Gallardo for Wethepeople been online since February and we’re just finding it now? This edit is loaded with goodness and you definitely will want to see this!
Normally, I can start an intro for an interview explaining why the person was deserving of an interview. However, Mike has clearly proven himself time and time again over the years through his video parts and edits and that’s not really neccesary. So I’m going to tell you a funny story that Mike doesn’t even know about. A few years back I was flying home from Interbike from Las Vegas to Minneapolis. As I’m sitting there, I look over and I see Mike sitting there a few seats over waiting for boarding. I’m absolutely blown away and not even sure what to do. I ended up being so blown away that I couldn’t get myself to say what’s up to him. Sure enough for that 3 hour flight back to Minneapolis, sitting 3 rows back from him on the plane, I’m kicking myself for not introducing myself.
Flash forward and these days I’m fortunate enough to talk to Mike on a regular basis about the happenings at Animal and work on different projects with the brand and team with him. It’s kind of funny how things like that happen and I’ll admit I still get a little nervous meeting pros like him. Now today, I’m stoked to be able to drop this interview with him to let you guys get to know him a little better! Check out what he had to say.
Name: Mike Brennan
Head over to the Wethepeople website to check out a fresh bike check with Nick Harris. Really digging this setup.
