Ubisoft CEO actually rides motorcycles, but he doesn't do backflips like in Trials Fusion

Yves Guillemot says his first bike was a Yamaha RDX 125 and reveals that he recently bought a Harley Davidson.

Here's an interesting fact: Yves Guillemot, the CEO of Trials publisher Ubisoft, is actually a motorcycle guy. Speaking during a special Trials Fusion Twitch live-stream today, the industry veteran said his appreciation for motorcycles dates back to his youth.

He explained that when he was 16, he had a Yamaha RDX 125 as his first bike. When he got older, he bought another bike, and just recently, he purchased a Harley Davidson. If you're ever travelling through France and you see a biker zip by, it could be Guillemot.

Guillemot, 53, still rides "from time to time," he said. Earlier in his biking days, he said he needed to stop "because I didn't want to die too fast."

Ubisoft acquired Trials studio RedLynx in November 2011, and now we have to imagine that Guillemot's passion for bikes may have had something to do with it.

Trials Fusion launched this week for Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation 4. The PC version is slated to arrive next week. For more, check out GameSpot's review of Trials Fusion.
