After taking a 40ft fall off a cliff last year, Chris Akrigg was in a rather bad way. A shattered femur, broken arm and unscheduled appearance on the Helicopter Heroes TV show was followed by a hospital bed, a lot of un-recreational drugs and a light smattering of metalwork to keep his bones in the right place. That was back in April last year but after ten months of agonising rehabilitation, he’s finally back on the bike – and in front of the camera…
As Chris says, he’s not back to 100% fitness yet – obviously, as he can’t go faster than Moss, his dog – but he’d still put most of us to shame on a bike.
We wish him all the best in his recovery…
