I Feel the Need… the Need for Speed

Or at least Dirk Auer does. I’m rather content these days at a more sedate pace. On a good day I can muster an adrenaline rush just if my truck starts in the morning.

But Dirk likes to go fast… on skates. Which makes him insane a daredevil. In his latest stunt, he rode a roller-coaster on specially made skates. Afterward, he said, “It was a lot of fun.” That may strike you as a tad understated, but this is a man who previously raced an Astin Martin by putting skates on his feet and a jet engine on his back. (Click through the link for a video of that.) So you can see that the roller coaster gig is probably pretty tame for him.
