This is not about a motor racer, but about a man of deliberation on just two wheels, a very courageous and sporty one. Now it is the moment to have a look at today’s video – it says a lot, but to that, there are also some essential aspects to point out.
Two wheels, no engine – one man, the Austrian Fabio Wibmer. But it did not work completely without engine either: the foundations were laid in motocross; he started riding motocross at the age of six and even took part in 2011 in the Motocross World Championship in Italy.
But after watching a video of stunt rider Danny MacAskill, Fabio Wibmer became hooked on biking, fell in love with this sport. He was subsequently one of 15 young bikers selected by MacAskill to attend his „License to Trial“ workshop. Some time soon, the Austrian had become one of the best-known faces in the biking scene.
Behind his brilliant performances is a lot of hard work. Preparation begins in the head (often around a thousand times for just one new trick), takes years and requires training over and over again. Nevertheless the risk is always present, falls are unavoidable.
With or without engine, two or four wheels – there are some things in common: the driver’s talent and dedication, skills and abilities – indispensable and fundamental, crucial for the show and the success. As a driver, enjoy your ride – as a spectator, enjoy the drivers’ spectacular performances!
See you next Friday. - God bless you, all the best! The Castiron
