Riding the pipe is downright a dangerous sport and it takes quite a thrill seeker to wish to surf such waves. Take red haired surfer Jamie O’Brien from Hawaii and you have the perfect example. Daredevil and immune from the apparent hazards of this sport including sunburn, O’Brien is a top contender. Recently at the Red Bull surf event in his home island, Jamie scored a perfect 10 and lost to another surfer. My first thought was this could only happen to a redhead.
You can always count on a redhead to do something crazy! Like challenging the full force of a hurricane wearing nothing but his briefs.
Meet the modern day berserker, Lane Pittman. Berserkers, of ancient Norse origin, were known for their fierceness. They went into battle naked wearing nothing perhaps but bearskin, hence the name. In Lane’s case, nothing but flying red hair, white skin and blue shorts. Berserkers dedicated themselves to the Norse god Odin, leader of the Viking gods, a shapeshifter possessed by the spirit of the wolf or bear. Lane in his battle frenzy challenges the force of Hurricane Florence, shaking like a shaman to heavy metal music and brandishing the American flag. Go Red!

Several motocross and super cross champions have all sported the red hair, such as the G.O.A.T. Ricky Carmichael and Ryan Villopoto. Why are they so good?
First and foremost-they have to be crazy and adventurous. Just looking at history, redheads have sure been like that. Just imagine, 25 riders or more with their engines screaming, lined at the gate, shooting for one spot on the track after being jettisoned on those 2-wheeled rockets. One wrong move might send you flying head first into the dirt. The chance of being run over if you fall is pretty high because no-one gives an inch in this high octane sport. Redheads are fiery which can translate to fiercely competitive. People with red hair can produce adrenaline faster than anyone else too. Good for quick energy.
Perhaps because redheads can handle more pain makes them more fearless. The rider would have to have fast reflexes and be quick for the start of the race. An impulsive nature goes without saying when it comes to passing other riders.
They must relish the thrill and glory of all those screaming fans if you win and getting on the podium with those curvaceous bodacious women while spraying the champagne.
You have to be strong and agile to throw that bike around in every direction possible. Didn’t Mark Twain say that redheads evolved from cats? Man those guys fly high in the air.
Let’s hypothesize esoterically- in the first Star Wars movie, Qui-Gon explains about little Anakin Skywalker’s fast reflexes. He says it’s because he can see the future and will know what is coming. The red-haired Merovingian Kings were known for their magical powers too. So you could say that redheads are Jedis on motocross bikes.
