Motivation in the Form of a Bike

As Dave Vanderveen recovered from a car accident that could have killed him, he decided to return to mountain biking. The only problem was that the bones in his foot were shattered, and at least one of those bones looked like a bag of marbles. He needed something special for motivation, and his wife put up with an unusual bedroom request to make sure he had a muse. That last sentence sounds dirty, but the video is nothing of the sort. It's clean, short, beautifully edited, and you should watch it to get an idea of what an injured athlete has to go through to get back to singletrack.

This video is the fifth episode in a series called Balance.
