Graham Agassiz is way more laid back than you would expect for a mountain biker who looks forward to putting his life on the line at Rampage each year.  He’s one of the best, who rides with a signature, loose style that really shines in a big mountain setting.  On the podcast, we talk about leaving Kona, the influence of moto and snowboarding, getting bullied, rampage, and injuries.  Aggy is one of those dudes that lives to have fun and that always makes for a great podcast.
