Benefit Sweeper

On Saturday, T-1 held the Mike Tag Benefit jam to raise money to help Mike fight Stage ll Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma which he was diagnosed with in April.  Mike, longtime FBM rider, was easily one of most respected street riders in the mid-late 90’s and early 2000’s.  When you thought of street riding, Mike was easily considered to be the guage that all street riders were to be measured against.  His riding was raw with a powerful style and he pushed riding into scary directions where most were nervous to go.  I remember him telling me that it was totally possible to smith grind down brick ledges and this was before you even double pegged brick ledges.  He definitely opened my eyes.  There are a bunch of upcoming benefit events for Mike, so stay tuned. If you can’t make it then feel free to make a donation HERE.  Check out more photos from the jam at ESPN and thanks to Sandy Carson for the photo.
