Profile:

Kevin Robinson is a seasoned vet with 20 years experience under his belt. Although he did not make a big splash in the beginning of his pro career, he has methodically found his way to the top. One of the most progressive and creative riders out there, he invented the corkscrew flair and now does every conceivable flair variation: no-handers, no-hander to no-footers, and even switch-handers. With these tricks under his belt, Kevin now finds himself constantly on the podium. As if this wasn't enough, Kevin also finds time to be a husband, a father, a competitive body builder, and a country singer.
