A Handicapped Rider's Incredible Story
www.youtube.com
A man who sacrificed everything for mountain biking, Michal Kosik. He would nearly every day on his bike. Unfortunately a serious accident five years ago forced him in a wheelchair for the rest of his life. Doctors say his spinal chord will most likely never heal. Michal was determined to never give up on his passion as an athlete. He built his own off-road quad bicycle and got back on wheels. He teamed up with famous freeriders Richard Gasperotti and they traveled the French province of Aples-de-Haute-Provence to ride the slopes once again. Michal's story is incredibly inspiring, giving hope to all of those who have fallen and don't want to give up. If this doesn't motivate you to ride I don't know what will!

@AnthonyB Doesn't it? I'd be a bit scared though. It looks like it's going to tip a few times
