Born and raised in a motocross rooted family just outside of Los Angeles, California, Spencer Rathkamp has always had a knack for two wheels. Burning holes in 12 inch tires behind his childhood home, Spencer grew up racing bmx and motocross, but when he turned 17, he first picked up a mountain bike. From then on, the rest was history. Starting with Cross country racing, he quickly found he had a unique skillset on the bike that could put a smile on many faces. Fast forward to now and he spends much of his time racing enduro mountain bikes and creating content to relay positive messages about mental health and inspire future generations to ride their bikes.
As an innovator of tricks and dominator of competitions, his ambitious attitude and dedication to perfecting his techniques captivates spectators. One moment he is kicking up dirt, bouncing down the track. A second later he is 60 feet in the air, upside down, hands off the bike, then back on the ground. You never know what he’s going to do next.
Nowadays, Spencer holds down a full time job at Fasthouse - a moto and mountain bike brand based in Southern California. In his free time still catch Spence out on the trails creating some amazing videos with his friends!
