Tavian Bryant – Living the Dream

It has been an amazing month. 7 races over a 10 day period in 2 different states. I made my first trip to Wisconsin to race in the Tour of America’s Dairyland. The Tour of America’s Dairyland featured four straight days of racing four criterium courses in four different cities around southeastern Wisconsin. A criterium is a circuit race on a closed course in which we complete several laps over a 30 to 35 minute time period. I really [...]

Tavian Bryant – The Journey to 40 and Beyond

This whole journey started about 5 years ago. I had been in a wheelchair for 18 years at this point. I was out of shape and needed to do something about it. I also wanted to get out there and feel myself in the wind as I did before, riding bikes and motorcycles in my youth. I bought a handcycle shortly after my injury, and I rode it from time to time. However, it mostly [...]

Paratriathlon Worlds Finals, Rotterdam – Netherlands September 15th, 2017

Aloha fellow Team PossAbilities supporters and enthusiasts! Today we’re here to report about the Finals in Rotterdam. Everything about that race was tough: the weather, the course, the competitors. It was the same usual suspects, with varying degrees of disability (and unfairness in some cases as we know). After a smooth 10 hour flight from LAX to Amsterdam, I met with Team Brazil in the airport and we drove to Rotterdam. Beautiful 2 hour drive through green fields, a lot of [...]

Disabled athletes should inspire us

Carrie Finale of Pacifica, a member of Team PossAbilities and a competitor in the handcycling competition at this weekend’s Redlands Bicycle Classic. REDLANDS — To those of us with four healthy, functioning limbs, these cycles might look funny or weird at first glance. They’re long, low to the ground, meant for the rider to recline and not sit upright, and can be propelled by the hands just as well as by the feet. Maybe we’re the ones who should take a [...]

Handcycling becoming a welcome staple of the Classic

Matt McLeod, Redlands Daily Facts Redlands Daily Facts Posted: REDLANDS — It took months for Delmon Dunston to feel human again. The 33-year-old Riverside native will never forget the moment that first changed his life. The date was July 14, 2000, and Dunston was wrestling at a local gym when he shattered his C6 vertebra. It was an injury that would leave him unable to walk ever again. Cooped up inside his house, stuck inside a wheelchair he’d grown to hate, it wasn’t until [...]
