    Great link! That look like a very nicely engineered leg. Hats off to everyone out there who has that level of determination.
    When under pressure, your level of performance will sink to your level of preparation.

    I wish I could do more, your attitude is so impressive. Be patient you really will soon be back ripping down trails with the wind in your hair and the rush of biking through your blood!!!! Just time. That's all.

    You need a bit of a sense of humour for this but there was a song written in the 80s (I think) by MATTHEW WILDER and the lyrics went:

    Ain't nothin' gonna break my stride
    Nobody's gonna slow me down
    Oh-no, oh-no, I got to keep on moving


    Remember, what's in your head is a lot more important than what's going on with your leg. And as far as that's concerned, your absolutely fine. And I mean that, I'm not just being nice.

    prosthetic leg

    I got lapped by a girl with a prosthetic leg at the intersection of the bluff and pemberton trails in scottsdale arizone today. It was fantastic!

    Last year I was on Amies ride on my MTB and was getting overtaken by lots of roadies. One of them had a prosthetic leg I heard several paralympians were there and I guess he was one. Going by the way he kicked my ass I have rethought the expression "as useless as a 1 legged man in an ass kicking competition"
