 Idk what’s more difficult- believing that these guys aren’t superhuman, or reading the font they picked for the names
  • + 1
 Yeah, still don't believe what I read there. Did I read Ike Klassen or Ike Klaassen? Is a 14 year old riding the Fest series? What I could find was that he as talented and lives in South Africa. But a 14 year old on something like this, that's impressive.
