Dailies, Galleries -


This video profile of 16-year-old German KTM rider Ken Roczen plays a trick on the viewer. The first half, all insane training regimes and blood drawings, will have you mourning the Shumacherization of professional athletes. But then Ken leaves the lab, hops on his moped and becomes something else: a regular teenager.

    It’s striking to me how similar teenagers are, regardless of country. And holy crap, Im 26 am I really opining about Teenagers?

    I think it’s a little bit hilarious that eastern German teens apparently think it’s cool to drive a Trabant.
