Sean Vose was an extremely talented Motocross rider, hard-working self-employed Gas engineer and father to a very active young boy. On the 6th September 2018 life as he knew it changed for ever.
Sean and a friend attended a motocross event at Longnor Grass races, the event was like nothing he had ever done before, the track was a large flat circle. Sean went out for his race and got out in front quickly, beating a semi professional rider who he knew, as Sean came around one of the corners something happened and Sean was thrown off his bike and into a small ditch at the side of the track. Immediately it was clear that something was very wrong, Sean was airlifted to hospital and underwent a 9-hour surgery to save his life, unfortunately the accident had severed seans spinal cord, leaving him paralysed from the waist down. Sean spent several weeks in High dependency and then got transferred to a rehabilitation unit in Southport, where he exceeded everyone’s expectations as he managed to be able to move back home just before Christmas.
Sean has adapted amazingly to being in a wheelchair and is taking everything that’s thrown at him in his stride, but he will require on-going medical care for the rest of his life and adaptations to the property that he shares with his family.
Adam has made the decision ride the gruelling Scotland 500 in order to help raise funds to help towards Sean’s rehabilitation and on-going care costs. The North Coast 500 is a challenge of terrain and variable weather and the leisurely pace gives you time to stop and enjoy the landscape and experience this unique environment and it’s communities.
This is a gruelling 65 miles per day bike ride which should take approximately 5 / 6 full days of riding to complete.
