Ricky James started racing motocross when he was all of 10 years old. By the age of 16 he was one of the best up and coming riders around. Then a crash changed everything and James was paralyzed from the waist down. In 2008, with the help and support of motocross legend – and the 2000 Ironman champion in the handcycle division – David Bailey, Ricky James finished the Ironman World Championship in his first attempt. After a few years away from the sport, Ricky James is back racing triathlons and loving it more than ever.
