Mountain Bike Downhill racer Tom Wheeler suffered horrendous injuries in an accident during and event in Wales. Here is Tom's story on his road to recovery.
On the 26th March 2011 I took part in what seemed to be an average weekends racing. Little did I know that on this day my life would be changed for ever.
This 3 part series will give you an in sight in to my recovery and progress since the injury 4 months ago. Many of you might find it difficult to comprehend what has happened to me as I'm very similar to you, just an average guy who races bikes for fun. Its a dangerous sport and I always knew the risks involved. I now have a paralysed right arm but don't plan on letting it stop me from enjoying life, i just see it as a new challenge.
A huge thanks to my family, Mojo Suspension, the WDMBA Organisers and Staff at Morriston Hospital for helping me with every thing.
Always look forward, never look back.
