Received another update. Andrew is rethreading the arm and building a stronger shoulder attachment. I don,t think the arm will make it to CrossVegas, but we are getting closer.

When I began racing bikes I also began the process of trying to figure out how to go faster on the bike. I went through numerous modifications with brakes, shifting and recently a steer damper. Many years ago I also began the process of having a prosthetic built that would allow me to mountain bike and withstand the abuse of technical trails and descents .


I currently have a custom chest harness and shoulder socket designed to receive an arm built by Dr. Will Craig of Advanced Prosthetic Technologies. Recently I was awarded a grant towards the purchase of the Arm built by Dr. Craig. Challenged Athletes Foundation awarded me $800.00 towards the purchase of the prosthetic. The total cost of the arm is $5,200. Upon hearing the news of the grant, several friends ,sponsors and organizations have asked how they can help. This group/ page is a place where you can offer support, suggestions and for those that can’t wait till cross season to heckle me.

You realize the extra arm means added weight and aero drag, right?

Awesome, there are good people everywhere. Tell you what, take this & go buy some beer to celebrate. Any Australian or New Zealand beer, but not Steinlager because that's just crap!! Looking forward to the photos.
