The Goat Cave Podcast (Ep:93-Drew Bezanson, Ft. Matt Weatherill)


Today we have a very, very, special guest. This has been someone I’ve wanted to speak with since I started doing the podcast. Our guest today is one of the biggest names in BMX, who has cemented himself a spot among the likes of Jay Miron, Dave Osato, Paul Buchanan, and others as one of the most influential and greatest Canadian BMX riders ever. Over the last 12 years we have seen him put out countless incredible video parts that would continue to push the limits of what is possible on a BMX bike, he is the king of Simple Session with 5 wins under his belt, he has won Toronto BMX jam so many times that people stopped wondering who was gonna be first, and started taking bets on who was taking 2nd place. He is teamed up with some of the most well respected brands and companies in the world like RedBull, Toyota, DK Bikes, and more. His positive attitude is so infectious it's impossible to not be smiling when you're around him. We are so lucky to have the one and only Drew Bezanson in the studio here with us today!
