Cwmcarn, with one arm – Tom Wheeler’s back on the bike and looking rapid

Riding with a paralysed arm is one thing. Playing tree trunk slalom on Cwmcarn’s Y Mynydd downhill track is something else altogether! But that’s exactly what injured downhiller Tom Wheeler does in part 3 of The Tom Wheeler Project. We showed you his custom Orange 29er and arm brace just before Christmas – now check him out in action, at the Welsh trail centre and down the road in the Forest of Dean. Impressive stuff.
