His name is Dave Voelker, he's a bicycle extremist.

You might remember a time when Kore made a chain tensioner that bolted to your chainstay and just made your giant long cage derailleur's life miserable. You might remember a time when a bunnyhop to manual was bonkers and didn't even really need to be finished all the time. You might remember nose manuals and fakie nose manuals being impossible, surely the work of black magic.

You might also remember Hans Rey riding a little spring pony at a park (I Guess maybe that's an otter?).

This section was from Big Five in which Hans rides on five continents and shreds with a few other big name folk from days gone by.

That was just plain fun to watch. ...some good, old farting around on bikes and acting a fool set to a fun jam.

Some of that same footage and even the same song were used in GT's "Dead Sailor" which Voelker is in too killing it on a BMX. Sick movie as well!
