“Lovers of air travel find it exhilarating to hang poised between the illusion of immortality and the fact of death.” ~Alexander Chase, “Perspectives,” 1966
Robbie Maddison may or may not be a name you are familiar with, he’s a Freestyle Motocross rider from Australia, but it’s his insane motorcycle stunts and world record breaking challenges that really launched him to stardom, pardon the pun. Robbie Maddison, aka Maddo, is a true Australian, pushing the boundaries of what we think is humanely possible on a motorcycle. And although (I’m sorry if you are reading this Robbie), he looks like a bit of a muppet, Robbie Maddison is in fact some kind of supreme-being. Even Evil Knievel dreams he was as cool as Robbie Maddison and after watching soma’ these videos, so will you.
“The desire to reach for the sky runs deep in our human psyche.” ~Cesar Pelli
I have to admit, I kinda hate Robbie Maddison, he has basically done everything that I ever dreamt of as a kid, no I take it back, he’s done stuff that I wasn’t even cool enough to dream of in my wildest dreams. “Robbie Maddison, you’re a maniac!”
