Motorbike stunt rider

I work 0 _____ a motorbike stunt rider – that is, I do tricks on my motorbike at shows. The Le Mans race track in France was 9 I first saw some guys doing motorbike stunts. I’d never seen anyone riding a motorbike using just the back wheel before and I was 10 impressed I went straight home and taught 11 to do the same. It wasn’t very long before I began to earn my living at shows performing my own motorbike stunts.

I have a degree 12 mechanical engineering; this helps me to look at the physics 13 lies behind each stunt. In addition to being responsible for design changes to the motorbike, I have to work 14 every stunt I do. People often think that my work is very dangerous, but, apart 15 some minor mechanical problem happening occasionally during a stunt, nothing ever goes wrong. I never feel in 16 kind of danger because I’m very experienced.
