As I pushed my bike up a steep hill at Sea Otter last week I noticed the kid on the mountain bike in front of me pedaling only with his left leg. At first I thought he was goofing off or showing off. Then I noticed his right leg was missing!
Patrick Male from Half Moon Bay lost his right leg to cancer at age 10. He competes against two legged mountain bikers with humor, grace, a wonderfully positive attitude and a quick wit. This video tells his story much better than I can.
