20 Unforgettable Action Sports Heroes Of 2013

From Carlos Burle, to Danny MacAskill to Diana Nyad. We recognise our inspirations from the last year.

Doug Henry is a multi championship winning Moto-x champion, who has had a rocky road to success through a series of severe injuries. He first broke his back mid career. Then just as he looked like he would win his first title, he broke both of his arms.

After a successful comeback and many other injuries he retired a champion at the top. He had brief career at Snowcross, where he took silver in the winter X-Games, before coming back into Supercross where he broke his back again. This time though, the break was a lot more serious and he was left paralysed from the waist down.

But this wasn’t enough to stop Doug Henry, he had his bike modified with a roll cag and continued to ride in amateur races whilst trying to make a full recovery.

Last year he took his kids to friend Travis Pastrana’s compound. Not wanting to miss out on anything he decided he was going to nail a backflip. Travis said no way he was making it, naturally second attempt he did, landing right way up in the foam pit.
