Shout out to Fit for putting this up!
Soul BMX ran an interview (in French) that Jeremy Pavia did with Mike a few months ago. We figured plenty of English speakers would want to read it too, so we threw it in a flipbook for you. Mike does a really good job of explaining a lot of tough stuff, so if you’re an Aitken fan, consider this a must-read.
A lot of you guys might not remember what BMX Action is (the original or the unauthorized resurrection) but a young, 16 year old Mike Aitken happen to have an interview in the inaugural issue of the latter. Click on over to Collateral BMX to check it out.
Does it turn you off to one day maybe being big time?
I don’t think I really want to be big time like that. I’d rather be big time like, more like Joe Rich and Taj. You know what I mean? More like being respected and stuff.
He pretty much pulled that off with ease.
Our friend Jeff Zielinski has launched a new site, be sure to check it out. We’ve worked with Jeff for many years and he has accumulated a great body of work.
Above is a classic of Mr Aitken.
Mike Aitken graces the cover of the new DIG photo issue. Unbelievable style right there.
Shout out to Keith Terra on the photo. Pick this issue up, it’s awesome.
