Interview with Michael Aisner

Michael Aisner with his pet lizard, Zilla

“Oh yeah, I got the sport when I was in North Boulder Park the first time. It did not take much. It was the color, the internationalism, the excitement, the danger of it, the youth, the vulnerability of people on bicycles, with nothing but this thin layer of Lycra, the fact that they were riding on tires that were made out of silk, there was all sorts of romance to it that I hadn't really seen before.”
