If you’ve ever ridden the trails at Dyfi Bike Park, or you just love mountain-biking, please support 20 year old Jamie Cable, a talented rider who has dedicated his young life to building trails in the Dyfi.
Jamie’s style on a bike is inspiring to watch. At Dyfi Bike Park he is Dan Atherton’s right hand man who found a second home in trail building. Every day since he was a kid his belief and dedication have kept him digging, even in the very worst conditions he never wavered.
Jamie’s kindness and gentle, cheerful nature have made him a firm favourite with everyone who lives in or visits the Dyfi.
On the 4th May this year Jamie suffered a life-changing accident.
He wasn’t riding, or driving the digger, or any of the high risk activities that characterise his life. He was helping to look for a lost dog and suffered a severe head injury. It was the kind of sheer bad luck that could happen to anybody.
For a while we feared we’d lost him; Jamie stayed in a coma at Cardiff Hospital for almost 2 weeks, but he’s a fighter.
In the last few days Jamie has been moved to Cardiff’s neurological ward. He’s responding and can smile and put his arms around his family. He hasn’t regained his speech, his limbs are weak and he’s still being tube fed. Only time will tell how much his brain has been affected.
It’s a very long and uncertain road towards recovery and we’re asking for your help to secure the best rehab support for this amazing young man who has his whole life ahead of him. Your help will also allow his family to remain close to him in Cardiff.
