On December 1, 2001 Joe was injured in a motocross accident while racing at Monster Mountain in Tallassee, Alabama. While jumping a 40 ft tabletop he hit a divot on the face of the jump that caused the bike’s rear suspension to rebound bucking him like a bull over the handlebars. Upon impact with the ground, he broke his back at the T-10/11 vertebrae leaving him immediately paralyzed from the waist down.

“We may get knocked down on the outside but the key of living in victory is to learn how to get up on the inside.“
