Most people will know the story of Martyn Ashton at this point. He’s the mountain biking trials legend that had a life-changing accident in 2013 during one of his touring trial shows that left him paraplegic.
Martyn has been stunning the world for some time now. His “Road Bike Party” videos warranted millions of views on YouTube and saw him take on new territory as he flipped and tricked his way around the world on a racing bike.
His return to the bike in 2015 video “Back on Track”, on a bike specially modified for his condition, wowed the world again. He’s a much loved figure in mountain biking and beyond not only for his influence on the sport, but for his attitude; always positive and always inspirational to everyone who watches.
