Some of the clips in this are pretty hard to watch but it’s good seeing it though since it really puts into perspective how just one crash can really affect your life. Mikey’s been through a lot this past year and this video takes you through his highs and lows. His road to recovery continues to progress and you can trail along at MikeAitken.com. While there, make sure to hit up the Vigilantia section. It’s a great way to rock some cool threads while showing support for one of BMX’s largest inspiration and influence.
