When you talk about legends you have to talk about Max Gaertig. Max didn’t mean to invent the majority of whip combos but he may have done just that. Next time you think you just did something new on a bike, it might be an idea to check out what Max did.
Where did you come from?
…and where will I go? Wait, I just saw that question actually comes up at the end.

What is your worst fear?
To lose my mind.
Which living person do you most admire, BMX and non-BMX and why?
In BMX its Martin Mahlert (Billy Freedom), because he tries to make BMX better every day while at the same time remains being completely honest. Also he rides as much as he can despite having a job within BMX.
Outside of BMX it’s Bill Maher, because he tells the truth into the face of stupid people in a provocative way. Also he takes the time to do it almost every day. I admire his motivation to have fun while trying to educate people.
