While mountain biking at Snow Summit bike park in Big Bear California, Sam decided to go off of a hip jump that he had never seen before. He had too much speed and went over the handlebars mid-air and landed face first. This crash resulted in Sam shattering his T6 and T7 vertebrae.

“Before my injury, I always wanted to ride my bike at Whistler Bike Park in Canada. Although I can’t do it on a two-wheeled bike, High Fives has given me a chase to do it on an adaptive bike“
