Show Notes

Joey Evans has always loved bikes.  His dream was to one day ride the most grueling off-road race in the world, the 9000km Dakar Rally.  In 2007 his dream was shattered when he broke his back in a racing accident.  His spinal cord was crushed, leaving him paralysed from just below the chest.  Doctors gave him a 10% chance of ever walking again.  Many would have given up.  The dream of riding in the Dakar propelled him to walk again, then ride and then ride and finish the most grueling race through South America.

Listen in to a story of friendship and respect, compassion and kindness.  It is about defying the odds to reach a dream, it is about grit, endurance and raw courage and it’s inspiring and spine-tingling.
