Thanks to my prosthesis, my disability and my passion for MountainBike I was able to achieve many goals, sports, economic and professional. In fact there were a lot of sponsors who invested in me and in my person, and thanks to all those who supported me I became the official forerunner of the Downhill World Cup and participated in many races all over Europe.
It was the best time of my life, but it was interrupted by the Covid-19 pandemic that affected us all. I can say that I had another “accident” on the route, because i lost my company, my job and a lot of my sponsorships. All this has created a huge hole in my finances that at the moment do not even allow me to buy a new prosthesis, mine now out of use, creating a series of unfortunate situations that make my past moments only a vague memory.
Without my prosthesis everything stops, unfortunately, and that makes me quite sad. I miss my bike, my freedom and my running in the middle of nature. I miss chasing my goals and my dreams. but first of all I miss my dignity and the chance to start a normal working life that still allows me to practice my great passion.
For this reason I hope that a message will arrive to all of you and that with the small support of many I can go back to being “CarbonHook the guy with one leg, one bike and one passion…Pedaling”.
