I had seriously reached a point in my life where I wasn't scared of anything. Panic was replaced by awww, shit, how can I fix this before I hit the ground' Childhood for Mat Hoffman was packed with hazardous behavior and a constant searching for a new rush: sliding down the laundry chute, blatantly misusing a trampoline, leaping off the roof holding an umbrella, executing a two-story bomb drop into a swimming pool on a bike, and more. After experimenting with his bike on a plywood ramp at age eleven, Mat found his true calling. He became addicted to aerials. By the time he was fourteen years old, Mat had earned national notoriety with his ramp skills and landed a factory sponsorship from Skyway Recreation. He was consumed by a love of bike riding, a passion that took him around the globe and beyond the limits of what people said was possible. Always pushing for more height or another way to turn air into art, he's shattered world records, conventional wisdom, and his own body in a quest to experience all that life has to offer. The price' More than a dozen major surgeries, fifty broken bones, countless concussions and knockouts -- Mat's sacrifices are evident in a medical file that's 400 pages thick. When the boom years of BMX freestyle bottomed out during a bike industry recession in the late 1980s, Mat's enthusiasm never wavered. To save his sport, he bought a semi truck when he was seventeen and became his own sponsor, spreading the word one demo at a time. He and his friends formed Hoffman Bikes and began running bike stunt contests. It was an era of progress for Mat as a rider, as he unveiled jawdropping tricks like the no-handed 540, backflip fakie, and flair, and became the first rider in action sports to pull a 900. In The Ride of My Life, Mat takes readers on his humorous, hardcore, harrowing journey to the top as a bike stunt pioneer, ten-time world champion, video game superstar, X Games ambassador, recreational ninja, and the most innovative rider to ever hit a ramp. He shares stories of the wild experiences he's had while touring with some of the best riders around -- Dennis McCoy, Dave Mirra, Rick Thorne, Kevin Robinson, Mike "Rooftop" Escamilla, and many others. Spanning two decades of action sports history, as Mat crosses paths with high-risk heroes like Tony Hawk, Johnny Knoxville, and Evel Knievel, The Ride of My Life is the insane, true story of Mat Hoffman, the greatest bike rider of all time

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Developer HotGen's adaptation of Activision's Tony-Hawk-style BMX game for the Game Boy Advance is based on the design of their earlier GBC version, offering mostly the same game modes but in different and larger levels, and adding two-player modes for the first time. Players can select from the same eight professional BMX riders as in the console and GBC versions, each with different stats and signature moves. The training section is as comprehensive as on GBC: in 19 levels, basic riding and all manners of tricks, grinds, and combos are taught. The main Career mode consists of six levels. To unlock later levels, magazine covers must be collected, which is done by achieving specific goals in each level, all within a time limit: this includes reaching several different high scores ("high", "pro", and "sick"), collecting the letters T-R-I-C-K, finding secret covers hidden in the levels, and performing specific tricks, combos, or consecutive tricks without any bails in-between. The final level is a competition level where there are no goals to be completed or magazine covers to be won: medals are awarded instead for the best scores."--Moby games
