About Dustin

Dustin is not your average unicyclist.  His experience and awards speak for themselves.  He went from learning how to ride the bike, to setting world records in the sport of unicycling to performing around the world.  Plus, he articulates clear Christian messages that resonate with audiences. 

Background

Becoming a world champion and three-time national champion has not been an easy ride for Dustin Kelm.  The whole process began when Dustin 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.  Dustin excelled in racing and freestyle events, setting numerous national and world records in each age bracket during his jr. and sr. high years.  The life experiences gained from national and world competitions at such a young age have been invaluable. 

Not content with simply unicycling, Dustin continues to hone his performance skills and also endeavors to further his extensive training in theatre and physical movement.  In 1992, Dustin kicked off his solo-performing career with a tour in Japan.  At that time, Dustin 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.
