y name is Mike Spinner. I've been riding BMX since I was 10 years old, and it's something I seriously love to do. When I was around 13 years old I started working like crazy so I could buy BMX parts, and as the years went on I only wanted to ride more. When I was 16, my mom passed away--she was the closest person in the world to me. From then on I had two things to take care of: graduate high school and ride my bike.
When I was 18, I went to Woodward Camp, and that's where it all started coming together. Riding with the best riders in the world and having them support me pushed me harder than ever. I had won an event called the Free Flow tour in Florida, which gave me a chance to compete and score a spot on the Dew Tour. I got picked up by some amazing sponsors, made some amazing friends, and I'm very lucky to be living my dream.
