You probably haven’t heard of Alan Kempster before, but we promise that by the end of the video posted after the jump, he will be your personal hero. A double-amputee, Mr. Kempster lost his right-arm and right-leg after a tragic accident, which saw a drunk driver hit Alan while he was riding his motorcycle.

Where many would have given-up, Alan persevered, and ultimately set out to resume his motorcycle racing efforts. Rigging his motorcycle to have its controls on the left-hand side, Alan finally convinced his local motorcycle racing league to let him compete. He won his very first race. His racing number is ½. Respect. Thanks for the tip John!
