podcast : Micayla Gatto - Ferda Girls

On this episode, Micayla opens up about her former career as a professional downhill mountain biker and why she made the switch from world cup to free rider. She gives me a quick lesson on mountain biking lingo, shares her inspiration for Ferda Girls and goes deep into the whys of her music video Ferda Girls (a parody of Kendrick Lamar's Humble).

We sing song to the Sound of Music, share what we're listening to (helloo Luke Mitrani) and jam on legitimizing lyrics. Micayla shares her purpose and what she wishes for the next generation of women.

about Micayla

Snatched from the Crankworx website: Micayla is an ex-World Cup downhill racer-turned-professional good-times haver and storyteller.  She aspires to become a bike adventurer/vlogger, own her own lifestyle brand, and be riding until she’s 95. You can usually find her on her bike or snowboard, at the gym, wandering in the woods, camping, drawing, writing, making music or blowing up your Instagram feed.

Fun fact: Micayla designed all the Crankworx regional festival t-shirts. NBD.
