If you have ever looked at those able to balance on just one wheel with envy, then you are not alone. Maxwell Hermann recently started a unicycling club at Los Alamos High School.
Hermann’s inspiration for unicycling came from watching Max Schulze, the 2012 world champion unicyclist who is from Los Alamos and Emily Pittman, a recent LAHS graduate and unicyclist, perform a unicycling routine in a pep rally at LAHS, last year. This summer Hermann’s boss convinced him to buy a unicycle and since then he has been riding with Max Schulze nearly every day.
In fact, Hermann is a world championship hopeful; “Two years from now in Spain there is the Unicycling World Championships and I’m hoping to qualify in the beginners’ category,” he said.
