Daredevil biker with Bajan links
GEOFF GASKIN, one of the thrill-seeking stunt bikers who defied gravity at the inaugural Barbados Festival of Speed on the Bushy Park circuit over the weekend, has Barbadian roots.
Gaskin, who hails from Montreal, Canada, has Barbadian descendants with his great, great grandfather coming from Barbados.
A biking fan told the DAILY NATION he was both surprised and delighted that Gaskin has local blood in his veins.
Gaskin was part of a formidable trio that comprised Americans Robert Haskin of Florida and Carl Richie of Seattle, that put on a memorable acrobatic, aerial display that left more than 10 000 fans screaming for more. (MK)
