Apparently, Chris Pfeiffer studied biology, but to watch him riding you may wonder if he actually studied how to bend physics. Ever since he took up riding motorbikes in the mid 1990s he has been re-writing the laws of what is physically possible on two wheels. For instance, in the 2004 Stunt-wars contest in Florida, the daredevil rider pulled off a 115-degree wheelie - a massive 50 degrees more than what was ever thought possible on a bike.
