Dave Fuentes, riding with the full support of his XO teammates last weekend the the 2012 Criterium Championships – completes an amazing comeback just 2 years after being severely injured by a distracted driver while on a training ride.
Dave expressed it best just after his win:
“Thank you to everyone who sent me well wishes and congratulations. It was/sill is a long recovery process that could not have been achieved with great support, friends and family. All of this has been witnessed by 1 person, whom without, would not be possible. She has been by my side from beginning to end, has seen my highs and lows and has never wavered in her encouragement of me to never give up, even as I laid in a hospital bed with a broken back, leg and shoulder wondering if I would ever walk correctly again, never mind ride a bike. I love you Christine Fuentes, your all the encourgement I’ll ever need.”
