Think mountain bike racing is extreme? Try mountain bike racing with an artificial limb! The O&P Extremity Games kick off today in Orlando, Florida for athletes with “limb loss or limb difference.” The competition is legit with the top rider in the mountain bike race taking home $1,500 cash.
Aside from mountain bike and BMX events the O&P Games include skateboarding, surfing, and rock climbing competitions. One of this year’s mountain bike races, Derek Davidson, has a nice profile in yesterday’s Asheville Times. Check it out! (photo from extremitygames.com)
