“I never give up, I believe in myself.”

Back to overview

Joël Roelants was an ambitious professional motocross racer. A significant crash at the MXGP in Italy changed his ability to race but not his strong mentality.

The sport offered Joël the perfect physical and mental challenge he had longed for. In 2014, a crash at the MXGP in Italy gave him a whole new set of challenges, being forced to learn to deal with a severe spinal cord injury. Joël belongs to the 3% who got injured while doing extreme sports. In this video he tells us his story.

We wish Joel all the best for the future.
