Matt Dennison x Micayla Gatto Win Dirt Diaries

Date Aug 16, 2017

We thought Matt Dennison had retired from entering the Dirt Diaries at Crankworx. But Micayla Gatto talked him into entering this year, and they collaborated on an incredible parody of Kendrick Lamar's HUMBLE.

It is also a parody about the bike industry's past and present sexism, and a glimpse into a future full of awesome, ass-kicking women. In her acceptance speech, Gatto said she wrote it to sum up her experience as a pro, a mountain biker, and as a woman.

I love Matt's work - Beardless & Fearless is still my favourite cycling video - and I have to say that regardless I was blown away by how awesome this was.

Thanks Micayla and Matt!

Thanks for making that clear, I was about to ask who keeps such a stash of wonderful bike related things.

Just seeing her holding that Monster To got me wondering where did they get one in mint condition.

Is there video of the acceptance speech?

Also, love that she was 'modelling' with a MonsterT

I was confused while watching that, it felt kind of weird. I liked it so much but there was a dosage of shame. I talked about it to my friend from student NGO at UBC and she told me that I got subtriggered, it means I am offended without knowing about it.
