Becoming a World Champion and three-time national champion has not been an easy ride for Dustin Kelm. The whole process began when he received his first unicycle as a gift at the age of ten. Through much persistence and dedication he taught himself how to ride. After two years, Dustin found a local unicycle club and discovered there was more he could do on a unicycle besides his paper route.
Over the next few years, Dustin discovered the thrill of the sport of unicycling. He excelled in racing and freestyle events, setting numerous national and world records in each age bracket during his junior and senior high years. The life experiences gained from national and world competitions at such a young age have been invaluable.
In 1992, Dustin kicked off his solo-performing career with a tour in Japan. At that time, he began developing what has become a one-of-a-kind performance incorporating inspirational and motivational messages illustrated with world-class unicycling set to high-energy music.
In 2013 Dustin and his wife Katie became the first pair of unicyclists to ride across the United States (Katie is only the 2nd female to accomplish this feat). They rode 3,511 miles/5,650km in 97 days on the RefugeRide to raise support for Syrian refugees.
Dustin is also an accomplished actor and has played Jesus in several different passion plays. Very few people can say they've been crucified 100's of times! This experience has given Dustin a unique perspective from which to speak about the greatest act of love that has changed the world.
Whether speaking to 15 people or 15,000, Dustin shares a powerful presentation unlike anything you’ve ever experienced before.
