NEW Erick “Big E” Bartoldus Podcast is up – starting with his early days in Florida making his way to California and couch surfing at Gork and Spike Jones’ place, a stone throw away from Wizard Publications / BMX Action Magazine.

Once at GT, Big E went out on tour, becoming the Powerlite Brand Manager, and picking up a young Donny Robinson, Randy Stumpfhauser and later, Mario Soto; his thoughts on Mario’s passing in 2001 alongside the success Powerlite had during the 90s.
Big E talks about starring in GT videos and TV commercials, his end at GT, moving into the moto industry working for Transworld Motocross, Answer and later and his current job at Yoshimura where he is the Marketing Manager for R&D and so much more.
