Motorcycle Racing


 
 
Murray lost both legs below the knee while serving as a Lance Corporal in the Second Royal Tank Regiment in Afghanistan in 2010, but now races in the Triumph Triple Challenge series on a specially adapted Triumph Daytona 675R.
 
 

The first British paraplegic sidecar driver to be granted an ACU licence
 The week after success at Cadwell Park as a side car passenger I was involved in an accident on my road bike that left me paralysed from the waist down.
 I thought this might be the end to my sidecar racing ventures. However, my first trip out of rehab was to the Jock Taylor meeting at Knockhill. There I was introduced to Johan Reuterholt, a sidecar driver from Sweden who was also paralysed from the waist and showed me that I may not be able to compete as a sidecar passenger but there was nothing to stop me taking up driving.

Talen Skeels-Piggins - T4/5 Paralysed Motorcyclist

In 2003 Talan was paralysed form the chest down (T4/5) after a motorcycle accident.
 
For a few years he thought it was impossible to ride again, but then a ‘light bulb’ moment meant he thought he would give it a go.
