Not only is Hans an incredible rider, but just an overall nice guy. Hans also started the charity Wheels 4 Life where he raises money to provide people in Third World countries with bikes for transportation in order for them to get out of the vicious cycle of the poverty trap. In addition to providing them with transportation, he also teaches them the trade of building a bike. For more info, or to make a donation to Wheels 4 Life, please visit http://www.wheels4life.org/

Riding with Hans Rey!
Dano and I had the amazing opportunity to do a downhill run with Hans Rey in Park City. For those of you not familiar with Hans "No Way" Rey... Hans is considered the world's leader in extreme mountain biking. He is a former trials riding world champion, a showman, a stuntman and an adventure mountain biker. He has traveled the world extensively; riding his GT mountain bikes, over and through areas previously considered unrideable. Hans has been riding for GT for 27 years.
