Juanjo Méndez was in a terrible motorbike accident in which he lost his left arm and left leg. He was more devastated from the fact that he hit a car with 5 passengers then he was about loosing limbs, thankfully all the passengers were okay.
Recovering from his accident, Juanjo refused to be limited by his accident. He took up cycling as a way to keep riding on two wheels, Juanjo and his friends never expected it to take him anything more than enjoyment.
His determination took him to wins at the world's championships in 2011 and 2013 as well as being Spanish Champion on numerous occasions.
