Martyn Ashton, paralyzed professional cyclist, has taken up hand cycling!
Martyn Ashton gained much notoriety in the road cycling world with his "Road Bike Party" videos where he road a road bike like a trials bike (and quite successfully too). While filming the second video, Ashton had a bad fall and was paralyzed from the waist down.
Well, I am happy to say that about one year after his accident he is getting back into competitive cycling, albeit a bit different than his previous experience with cycling. Ashton has picked up competitive hand cycling.
I am happy that this man has continued to keep going, even throughout the hardships he has faced.
