Chris Grenier is the man. He's a diverse dude, and a real individual. He doesn't ride like anybody else and he doesn't fit into any of the molds that the Internet nerds would like to put him in. Grendys is a loose guy, but when it comes down to it, few match his work ethic. He put in a lot of overtime this past year filming for the TWS video, Get Real. Dirty G stayed off the party train altogether and handled business—even going so far as to pay a dude $500 to hit a rail. Is that a write off? Chris also lost a harsh game of rock paper scissors this year and had to lick a handful of warm dog shit.
