MTB Legend Martyn Ashton Was Paralysed & Told He’d Never Ride Again. Today, He Released This Incredible Video...
This is the best video you will watch this year
In 2013 trials mountain biking legend Martyn Ashton, multiple times world champion and the star of the viral smash hit Road Bike Party suffered a tragic accident - breaking his back halfway through the filming of Road Bike Party 2.
Paralysed from the waist down, he was told he'd never walk, or ride a bike, again. But today, Ashton and his friends Danny MacAskill, Chris Akrigg and Blake Samson uploaded this video to Youtube. It's probably - no, almost definitely - the best video we've seen this year.
We're in good company too, track cycling legend Chris Hoy just tweeted this:

We defy anyone to watch his face as he rips down the trails without feeling warm and fuzzy inside. What a hero.
