Kristina Fender is a classic racing monkey. Not some cruel wired-up Indian street performer, it means she's a die-hard sidecar passenger who clambers all over the vehicle with her arse scraping the tarmac so as to maintain equilibrium as the rider pushes something with the natural stability of a shopping cart with one duff wheel. She has no fear. At Wheels & Waves she was shooting sitting backwards on a motorbike so she could remain in the thick of the action (while the film cars had to make-do with a few seconds at the front before being engulfed with overtaking bikes, then having to just sweep-up at the back).
