Mad respect for this guy

Postby Tom on Sun Feb 17, 2008 8:12 pm

Had a huge off and paralysed his one arm. The he adapted his bike to accomodate this with front and rear braking on the one side and various other tweaks. If you have ever tried to ride standing up 1 handed and/or pedal like that you will know how hard it is. Now imagine doing that on a downhill course!!

Good start for the documentary, shame about some of the comments made by people that they can see his one arm under his t-shirt despite the numerous people who have explained it in the comments.
Anyway take a look and post back here.
