Tweet Your Face Off With Mike Spinner

High fives are the official currency of @MikeSpinner. Take a peek inside
his head when he and his new right hand man Taz
(http://twitpic.com/17lkev) sit down to tweet their faces off.

Bio:
Ever since he won the Gatorade Free Flow Tour in 2006, Mike Spinner has
been a known name on tour. That year, in his first pro contest, he
qualified first in prelims at the final Dew Tour stop. In his first two
full years on tour, he finished 2nd in the overall standings. On top of
being a consistent rider, Spinner is also one of the most innovative on
tour. On top of routinely putting 1080s in his runs, he was the first
ever rider to land a quadwhip in a comp. After missing the 2009 season
due to injury, the BMX community is looking forward to Spinner coming
back strong in 2010.
