Ugh. I’m not feeling well after watching Mat Rebeaud’s practice. He strapped a few cameras to his motocross motorcycle so we could experience what he experiences… sort of. It must be a pretty amazing feeling flying through the air pulling off those tricks and you can get a good sense of it through his video. […]
Darius Glover — Paralyzed Motocross Rider
Darius Glover’s story is similar to many of us: he loves to ride his motorcycle. Glover started his two-wheel addiction at the age of seven, riding his dirtbike until the sun went down. Not long after, he started competing in motocross events.
At 15, disaster struck. Glover was racing when he attempted to pass another rider. The seemingly routine maneuver went horribly wrong and Darius flew over the handlebars, only to have his motorcycle land on top of him, paralyzing him from the waist down.
Doctors told him he’d never walk or ride a motorcycle again, but Glover isn’t one to take no for an answer. Not only is he riding again, but he’s competing at a high level, trying to qualify for Loretta Lynn this year after officials almost didn’t let him in last year.
Darius Glover’s story is inspirational and motivating to say the least. It speaks of courage and determination, and as a reminder to let nothing stand in the way of reaching your dreams. Watch Glover’s video below to see for yourself how one man deals with adversity.
