Jamie Whitmore has won more XTERRA events than any pro athlete in history. She ended up with 37 wins, five XTERRA USA Pro Championships and the XTERRA World Championship title in 2004. Her journey since the 2007 XTERRA World Championship race has been extraordinary to say the least. She now runs with crutches and rides the mountain bike basically with one leg. But she’ll be racing the Leadville 100 and her attitude is over the top. “Life doesn’t stop just because it changes,” Whitmore insists. “We can cry about how things are, or we can keep moving forward. I choose to move forward.”
Jamie Whitmore has been to hell and back.To see the former XTERRA World Champion racing the national championships in Utah, this time on crutches and with a brace on her paralyzed leg, was unbelievable. She came on the show to share the joy and appreciation she has for her new life.
