Jay LaPointe

Las Vegas, Nevada

 

Injured June 10, 2004

Official diagnosis: C 5-6 incomplete quadriplegic

Prior to my injury I was a successful motocross racer who had the goal of becoming a professional racer almost a month to the day when, during a practice crash on June 10th 2004, I injured my spinal cord at the C-4 level causing paralysis.  Not knowing anything about the new world I was about to enter or how that world would change my life in so many positive ways, my long road of recovery began.

• 1-year post injury I was independently standing

• 2 years later I visited Project Walk in San Diego upon where I was walking without any mobility aids in a therapeutic setting, still using a wheelchair for long distances.

• 2 years after that another visit to Project Walk with no wheelchair and walking much better without mobility aids in a therapeutic setting.

• 5- 7 years post injury was spent sourcing alternative modalities locally to get stronger and keep my recovery progressing. 

• 8 years post injury started riding a recumbent as a tool to gain leg strength to help with walking and to leave the wheelchair behind for good.

• 9 years post injury I started competing again this time as a Para-cyclist, upon finishing 4th in both of the races entered that year. 

• Late 2013 into 2014 was when I started regular visits to The Peak Center at Craig Hospital in Englewood, CO. Additionally it was my first National Championship in adaptive sports as a Challenged Athlete, and my first vacation without a wheelchair.

This year still going strong at the new Peak Center I won 2 more National Championships as a Challenged Athlete.  Haven’t used a wheelchair in well over a year.  Looking at the possibility of training for the Paralympics

in 2020.
