I (Mike Powell) caught up with Brett Tippie for a podcast. And being that the podcast format is made for a big personality guy like Brett, it's an entertaining hour. We talk about Brett's days of being a pro snowboarder on Burton’s pro team... He tells some amazing Craig Kelly and gravel pit stories. Then we jump into the birth of freeride, bikes, partying too hard, and coming back from dark times--to sponsors and emcee gigs. This is a funny history/life lesson that you do not want to miss.
