The Unknown Wheelie

The Unknown Wheelie. I was lucky enough to be invited along to Drachten in Holland by the British Superstreet bike racers who were going for the first round of the European Superstreet Bike series. Although my main focus was the European Superstreet round, I did venture to the startline to take in some of the other racing. Whilst there, I was lucky enough to grab this shot. As the guy came out of the burnout he did a dry hop and the front end started to come up. All the other photographers walked off, but having seen that I thought there was a chance he would wheelie it off the line. But I never expected anything like this!
To this day I have no idea of the guy's name, hence the title of The Unknown Wheelie.
