    cory, it's a gravity sport. no pedals. no gears. just full suspension and damn powerful hydro disc brakes on all 4 wheels.

    john, actually you might be able to. we modified the controls so i can brake by pushing vs pulling.

    jhm, no finger function, just wrist extension & flexion.

    actually i lied about losing interest in handcycling, but this has much more of a rush. downhill is difficult to do regularly due to logistics of needing a mountain w/ trails & a way to get to the top (over & over; we use ski lifts out here). handcycling can be done anywhere.

    Come on man, I want some action shots! That looks like it would be friggin' wild, especially in that scenery.
