What international senior Zunwu Zhou finds appealing about BMX—the feeling he gets when he nearly defies the laws of physics—is the same appeal he found in chemistry, his major. “When I’m in the lab, I push past the limits of what I think I can do. Sure, there are scientific principles, and chemicals have reactions, but research is about testing those boundaries.” Growing up in Wuhan, China, Zhou tried BMX after first watching it on ESPN. “No one else in my city was riding BMX, and I wanted to be the first,” Zhou says. Now Zhou spends what time he has between classes on a bike at KU’s Wescoe Beach because the smooth surface makes it easy for him to “spin and fix.” To be the first BMX rider in your city, travel 7,200 miles for college, and spend your life breaking chemical bonds, a person must be daring. Not fearless – just willing to accept a worthy dare. Zhou is as daring as they come.
