Just posted this on facebook. Awesome. Will be heading out to Tomahawk this weekend to watch him and hopefully meet my 11 year old. Pure drive that kid has!

Several of the guys down here have raced with him and say he's pretty much the same way as he's portrayed in the vid. Funny, laid back, and just trying to have a good time.

Cool kid. I remember seeing a video from when he was first getting back on the bike. Nice to see that he's really making it work.

I wonder how differently his suspension has to be set up to keep him comfortable while sitting all the time. Maybe you just get used to kickers and stuff that would otherwise pop you over the bars when you have no choice but to sit.

Awesome. I used to ride with a guy who only had control of one of his arms- the other was paralyzed for some reason. His legs worked fine.. so polio as a kid maybe? I have no idea, never knew him super well so never asked. He would velcro his hand to the bar, and had dual levers set up on the other. When he was riding, you would have no idea there was anything abnormal.

How does this guy shift? I watched some of the video, but I'm at work and have no sound here..

MTB-like thumb switches set up?

Wow, this is awesome. Goes straight to heart as my motorcycle mentor is pretty much disabled in his right hand due to a bad crash. Very inspirational!
