Trials legend Martyn Ashton's accident at a show in Silverstone two weeks ago saw him dislocate two vertebrae in his back. He's now fighting to make a full recovery after losing feeling halfway down his spine.
Over the years, Ashton has been a familiar face in Mountain Biking UK magazine, helping to bring the amazing sport of trials riding to a wider audience and becoming one of the world's most popular stunt riders. He's an inspiration to many mountain bikers and that makes him important.
