After finally meeting Dallan after so many years, it was great to grab a quick 5 minute chat with him before he was about to throw down at King of the Whip and see if he could stand on top of the box at the end of the night.
During our chat though, I was surprised when he dropped the bombshell that he was considering quitting FMX because of the backflip monkey on his back. And this is no joke. The backflip has ended the career of many riders. Of guys who couldn’t land it. And worse, those who crashed out badly. No one will know how hard it is until they deal with this themselves and really look at how dangerous it is.
