    First of all I would just like to take this opportunity to say a big thank you to all the people who have left such kind and positive comments on numerous forums and websites, It's really helping me mentally and to progress my recovery forward.

    I did mention in Part 1 that I had experienced serious damage to my brachial plexus, this is set of 5 nerves that exit the spine at the neck and control your arm. In my case I had torn 4 of the 5 nerves permanently out of my spine leaving my right arm completely paralysed. The one nerve still remaining has been grafted with nerves from my leg and side and may give me some limited movement within my bicep and forearm. I spent close to 2 weeks in hospital with 3 MRI scans which themselves were pretty daunting and then spent 13 hours straight on the operating table.

    It was a horrible feeling lying on the floor after the accident trying to work out what had happened, it was a messy situation to be in and i'm just glad I have only lost the use of my arm, I could have lost so much more. The first couple of weeks after leaving hospital were so hard, I went from being a super active guy on the bike 4-5 times a week and in full time work to a guy who couldn't stay awake for more than a couple of hours and found it extremely difficult to dress himself.

    One thing that has taken me by surprise is the nerve pain, I had thought that it couldn't be too bad if I can't feel my arm at least it can't hurt, how wrong could I be. I have a constant tingling pain in my hand and have waves of electric shock and crazy pulsing pains.

    Every day is hard but I'm just so glad to be recovering and back in work. I still love mountain biking and don't plan on stopping any time soon, its actually pretty rad riding one handed!

    A huge thanks to my family, Mojo Suspension and Thomas Bannister (thanks for popping down and helping me understand the injury).

    On the 26th March 2011 I took part in what seemed to be an average weekends racing. Little did I know that on this day my life would be changed for ever.

    This 3 part series will give you an in sight in to my recovery and progress since the injury 4 months ago. Many of you might find it difficult to comprehend what has happened to me as I'm very similar to you, just an average guy who races bikes for fun. Its a dangerous sport and I always knew the risks involved. I now have a paralysed right arm but don't plan on letting it stop me from enjoying life, i just see it as a new challenge.

    A huge thanks to my family, Mojo Suspension, the WDMBA Organisers and Staff at Morriston Hospital for helping me with every thing.

    Always look forward, never look back.

  5. Chapter One of the five-part short film Cold Rolled: Marquette Michigan's Snow Bike Route, an action documentary from Clear & Cold Cinema, Salsa Cycles and TravelMarquetteMichigan.com that will explore the history and progression of winter cycling culture in the adventure-loving Lake Superior harbor town of Marquette, Michigan.

    View Chapter Two here: vimeo.com/clearcoldcinema/coldrolled2

    Marquette's Noquemanon Trails Network has nearly perfected equipment and techniques used to launch its Snow Bike Route, a 15-mile winter singletrack developed for fat tire bikes. The fast narrow trail features flowy terrain, steep descents and large bermed turns. It's believed to be the first trail of its kind--but more importantly, it's pretty fun.

    Chapter One features riding along an ungroomed section of trail that is often packed by foot traffic from Marquette's active population. This section of trail follows the Dead River and passes under a leaky water pipe that forms curtains of ice in the winter months.
