Handbike in the Bikepark

In 2006 Blaise Mettan suffered a severe trauma to his spine at the Bikepark in Chatel, resulting in paralysis from the waist down. At twenty-two years old he decided that he would take to wheels once again. Seven years after his accident, Blaise has conquered his handicap thanks to a hand-bike specifically designed for downhill tracks imported by Serge Meystre from Defisport.
