Michal Kosik sacrificed everything to mountain biking. But after a serious accident five years ago he was sentenced to remain seated for the rest of his life. His spinal cord will probably never heal.
But Michal never gave up. He decided to build his own off-road quad and get back on the wheels. Then he teamed up with famous freerider Richard Gasperotti. Together they travelled to the French province of Alpes-de-Haute-Provence to ride the steep slopes once again.
Watching Michal making his dream come true is incredibly powerful and moving! You can find the video here:
Michal's quad is quite remarkable and it can give hope to many other handicapped men and women all around the world. A hope they will get back on the wheels, too! You can find more information about his quad in this interview with Michal:
