We recently returned from the first official Adventure Team trip to Central China. It was quite adventurous working with the Chinese Government, but we got to go to some beautiful, mystical, as well as mysterious places. We already started working on a 30 minute TV show for the Outdoor Life network, which is guaranteed to air 12 times in the U.S., Canada, and Latin America. We will also produce photo stories for magazines and newspapers worldwide. Amongst other TV projects, Hans was recently featured on the NBC TV Show “Extra”, “Good Day New York” (FoxTV), New Zealand, Chinese and English programs.
This country has always held a special fascination for Hans. That’s why he keeps going back. For his how-to video “Monkey See, Monkey Do”, Hans rode his GT mountain bike off a high bridge with a bungy cord, and plunged completely underwater before being ripped back up into the air still attached to his bike. He also rode the edge of treacherous white water rapids and even herded a few sheep. More recently, he did the unthinkable. As a publicity stunt, Hans rode down the vertical face of an Auckland high-rise. Utilizing a specially designed harness and braking system, Hans descended the 13 stories straight down.
For the making of his new video “Big Five” Hans and adventure riding sidekick, Greg “H-Ball” Herbold went to Africa. Here they rode the cliffs above Capetown, pretended to herd wild lions, rhinos, giraffes etc. in a game park (actually they were herded by the animals!), and hung out with the local bushmen experiencing their culture while letting the locals learn, touch, try to ride, and dance with these two crazy Californians.
