NOTHING WILL STOP ME – MOUNTAIN BIKE QUAD

Photos by www.welovecycling.com


Michal Kosik sacrificed his life to mountain biking and wouldn’t let it take away from him even after accident that sentenced him to remain seated for the rest of his life. This remarkable athlete is a perfect example that disabled riders can still enjoy their sport and that many times they can do it better than perfectly healthy individuals. With the persistence and help of some people, after 5 years of hard work, Michal built a four-wheeler, a mountain bike quad of his own design. This machine can not only take on man-built bike park courses and simple hills, but it will roll on one of the steepest mountain bike trails of French Alps. Here’s video of Michal living his passion again. Together with European legend and free rider Richard Gasperotti, they take on some of the steepest Alpine slopes in French province of Alpes-de-Haute-Provence. Enjoy the ride.
