Tara Llanes

Tara Llanes has guts, and heart. She's won many championships while racing BMX and mountain bikes. During a 2007 race in Colorado, she crashed and broke her back and neck, which put her in a wheelchair. Now, thanks to a little help from her friends, she's got a new three-wheeled bike and she'll soon be ready to hit the trails again with the people she loves. She's pictured here at North Vancouver's Obsession Bikes, who have been putting the bike together for her.

Tara will bring her new wheels to the Vancouver Bike Show this weekend, where she'll be at the Pearl Izumi booth. Below is a longer interview with Tara, as well as High Velocity story (interview is on top).
