Simon Richarson and the ICE VTX+
Here is an interesting story about a man who was a bicycle racer, got clipped by an automobile in 2001 and left for dead off the side of the road, recovered over time and surgeries, and now returns to racing in the form of the high performance ICE VTX+ speed trike. The accident shattered his leg and broke his back in 2 places. After a four year recovery, with a ratchet support system fitted to his spine and a left leg which no longer functioned, Simon used his love for cycling to rebuild his body. Again in 2011, Simon was hit by a car. Airlifted to hospital in a critical condition, he was diagnosed with a detached lung, a broken pelvis and a broken back in two places. Doctors said he would never ride again.
Indeed, it is amazing how the human powered recumbent tadpole trike has helped untold riders return from debilitating injuries into the world of cycling and even cycle racing. ICE trikes provide one option for those who just can’t seem to stop pedaling! Trike On Simon.
