Bruce CookLife in the fast lane is just that – fast. For motocross enthusiast, Bruce Cook, things happened all too quickly.

In an attempt to complete the first-ever double front-flip before a live audience; Cook, 26 stunned a packed house on the opening night of the 2014 Nitro Circus tour in Hamilton, Ontario. What should have been a record-setting stunt turned fatal when Cook under-rotated and flew off his bike; crushing his body and spine in the process. Cook sustained a spinal cord injury and has since been dreaming of the day when life in a wheelchair is an afterthought.
