Five years ago, Paul Basagoitia's career as a mountain biker looked like it was going to come to an end. He suffered a serious spinal cord injury that made it unlikely he would ever ride again. Nowadays, thanks to the invention of e-bikes like the kind made by Canyon Bicycles, Paul is not only riding again — he's thriving!
E-bikes aren't just for work commutes, they're allowing those with disabilities an opportunity to embrace a kind of freedom they didn't have before. While Paul isn't focusing on mountain biking competitions anymore, he is still stunting and riding much higher and faster than he would have thought possible.
