If riding for World was his "skating peak", this era was his "commercial peak". From here on in it gets good, or bad depending how you look at it.

Tony Hawk Tour
A few years prior to this I rolled my ankle for the last time, and it really did me in. So much so that I didn't skate for a couple of years. I was close to dare I say "quitting". Until one night out I was at a local bar having a few and this came on. I hadn't been paying attention to skating during my hiatus. Seeing this tour actually got my stoked to skate again. I can't remember all of the skaters on the tour but Mike V. was definitely one of them. Not exactly sure but I think he was riding for Black Label at the time, which seemed like a good fit.
