Tara Llanes rules. Leatt Brace

I had the good fortune of interviewing downhill MTB legend Tara Llanes for the Leatt newsletter and blog. What an amazing freaking story and a really neat person. A little background on Llanes: In 2007 she was paralyzed from the waist down in a horrible MTB accident. She’s since gone on to work to raise money for spinal cord injury research and is the name behind the annual Tara Llanes Classic. She was extremely gracious the dozen or so times I pestered interviewed her for the story. Glad to be able to tell it.

Have a read. This was one of those stories that makes me very happy with my chosen profession.
