[YouTubeUlar] <— 30,518 Starting to get a little serious on the edit... and in the sport. Thanks to Red Bull for pushing the limits - yet again. Great description of where this sport of BMX Dirt is heading.
Tonight’s movie is from Utah…
There is a BMX rider named Stephen Murray who had a traumatic injury in a Baltimore 2007 BMX Dirt event. He was throwing a double back on a bicycle and broke his neck. It was my first day announcing for DEW tour as G-Man and this was by far one of the worst accidents I have ever seen. During Stephens rehabilitation at Craig Hospital from a C3 broken neck… he eventually weaned from a ventilator which was amazing – since he could now breathe on his own. But at such a high level quad he is completely confined to a sip and puff wheelchair.
Friends and supporters started a brand “Murray Strong” over the last couple years and from what we heard in Utah… Stephen’s own spirits have been relatively low right now. As you can understand… being confined to a wheelchair can definitely take it’s mental toll on you… which it has on Stephen. When you lose your own zest for life it is time for friends and family to help keep you motivated to live the best life you can. Keep your head up high Stephen – this is a movie from your friends.
As a gift from Amanda Capper to everyone who takes the time to watch and understand the “real life” moment we had here in Utah – you get a surprise gift for your iPods.
I’m not going to guarantee this link will exist very long as this is a direct track from Amanda Capper’s upcoming album “Cocoon” … but I think Amanda will oblige. Recorded at Akashic Recording Studio with Prasanna Bishop on the Saxophone, this was simply an amazing experience.
