Blast From The Past from Michael Steingraeber on Vimeo.
You could say Mike S’s riding is timeless, a lot of what he has done and had dialled in the contest arena is still to this day untouched. The video is short, but to the point and one of the best things I have watched in a while. Mike S explains more:
“So much to say here: I have been to riding for so many years, memory fails me, I confuse contests or forget them altogether. But I know 2002 was a great year for me contest wise. I used to do many tricks switch and I believe many riders remember me for that. My friend Calvin Tan recently asked me to do that again and I said it’s too hard, which it actually is. But I can still do a few of my old tricks, even if it’s shaky.
It was fun to challenge myself to do this one afternoon. And then I remembered stuff like this was once worth $US10,000 according to a few street riders. Fun times!
p.s.: Remember that song? Cologne Worlds 2002? I love it!”
