Head mechanic Chad Geib, top, keeps everybody rolling with constant upkeep of the 12 motorcycles and three quads in the show. "With the bikes it's usually simple maintenance but the hardest part is that there's so many of them," Geib says. "If the quads overshoot a jump, they bend axles and break wheels; they have more issues."
