Motocross Champions Crowned at 9th Annual Extremity Games
Rochester Hills, MI (June 6, 2014) Celebrating its 9th year, Extremity Games joined together adaptive athletes on a national stage on May 24, 2014. Competing on what is arguably one of the toughest tracks in the Midwest, Baja Acres Motocross Park of Millington, Michigan hosted the event as part of their Memorial Day Weekend where champions were crowned in three categories: AMP Lower Extremity, AMP - Upper Extremity and Para (seated).
Organized by Athletes with Disabilities Network, Extremity Games provides athletes living with amputations and/or spinal cord injuries a venue where they can compete peer-to-peer, limb-loss to limb-loss on an equal playing field.
Returning Extremity Games Champions Max Gomez from New Rochelle, New York, Drake Smeltz from Westfield, PA each went 1-1 in the Amp Lower and Amp Upper class. Jesse Gildea from Van Wert, Iowa rounded out the gold medalists in the Para class.
"Extremity Games is a great thing," said Max Gomez. "These guys don't get enough credit for the things they do. Riding with all your body parts is difficult as it is but to have missing ones and still be able to perform on a bike is incredible."
