He has appeared in an action movie with actor Dennis Hopper, holds a stunt record in the Guinness Book of World Records and is one of the best-known trial artists in Europe. Oliver Ronzheimer may not be a household name yet, but the 36-year-old motorcycle performing artist from Cologne is synonymous with action and well co-ordinated stunts. Ronzheimer is a showman and it was his turn to steal the limelight from the trials riders during yesterday's 'Let's Rock & Ride' exhibition for the just-concluded second leg of the 2004 Indoor Trial World Championship at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre. 'I love my job so much because it gives me so much enjoyment to see the crowd like what I am doing. To see in their eyes that they are enjoying my show, it gives me great pleasure. It is such a nice feeling to perform before them,' said Ronzheimer. The German delighted the crowd with his stunts, performing front and back 'wheelies', 'stoppies' and jump-kicks - doing almost everything possible with his trials bike. The crowd loved his show and Ronzheimer, ever the showman, delivered what the crowd wanted. 'I am not doing this for the money and I just love what I am doing,' said the German, who performed one of the stunts in the 1999 German production Straight Shooter. Ronzheimer's other claim to fame is that he holds the world record for jumping over 38 people on his bike without the elevation of a ramp. That stunt was performed in 2000 in Singapore and nobody has ever come close to his record since. He also met American actor Dennis Hopper, who plays a former trainer from the foreign legion who helps tracks down a killer trying to blackmail the government, on the set of Straight Shooter. 'I did one of the motorcycle stunts for a baddie in the movie played by German actor Heino Ferch. On the set of the movie, I managed to meet Dennis Hopper and it was a very exciting moment for me. I enjoyed watching all his movies so it was great to be in the same movie as him. I managed to get Dennis Hopper's autograph,' he smiled. Ranked among the most well known and best trial artists in Europe, Ronzheimer is also a sports journalism student and he hopes to complete his course next year. He is currently employed as a stunts rider with KTM Sportmotorcyle AG in Germany. Ronzheimer has been riding bikes since he was eight. He competed in the German and World Trials Championship, but he would find more success as a stunt rider. 'I stopped competing at the World Championship in 1992 when I decided that I wanted a career as a motorbike performing artist. I was never able to reach the top 10 at the World Championship and my best finish was 27th in 1991.'
