Mike Ranquet is part of a rare breed of athlete (for lack of better term) who’s a legend in his sport but never became a household name.  His lack of filter when it came to sharing his opinions kept him out of the mainstream media, you only saw him in paid ads and video parts.  His style and attitude helped shape a sport and his story is a rollercoaster of awesome.  Do not miss this one.
