Where do I start? I guess the best place is to start when I was riding an XC bike. Brian inspired me to get on a DH rig. A little bit later we got connected to do a documentary for a high school film project
, which won a few awards and an honorable mention from the student Emmy people.
For some reason I only got a B for the video. Anyways...High School Project - Left Side:
During that time he had to under go reconstructive surgery for his residual limb, and up until recently has been under going rehab to get back into racing against able bodied athletes in cat1 (expert).
He has been working for 8 years with quite a few prototypes to get the refined product which you see in the video below:
Here is a video of him with a couple syndrome racing guys on his last prototype before his new unit arrived:
Brian Bartlett on his new production prosthetic knee:
I believe he is going to start up his race season at the next Fluidride cup, and then head down to South America to race.
