Cyclist Travels With Single Leg Over The Pyrenees

With one leg and one arm Christian Haettich completed the cycling in summer crossing the Alps, the Dolomites and the Pyrenees. The event was for amateur cyclists which continued for three weeks. He enjoys to cycle around the southern part of England. Amidst the riders who are able-bodied, Christian Haettich seems fitter than the rest.

In 2014 he was given the opportunity to ride through the Haute Route. The best part of the amateur is similar to the professional cyclists as the route of the ride remains the same. Friends join in along with the riders to support them as it is in football. High peaks were also part of the cycling route by the riders. The Pyrenees cover included climb of 19,000 metres, ascent of 21 and over 7 days the race got completed.

He not only took part in the event but participation in the other event which preceded also witnessed his participation. The first event was for seven days. The groups rode in event per event but Triple Crown rode in all the three races. For 22 days the race continued with just a single day off. It was quite challenging to ride for 22 days in total. With single leg and arm it was really a challenging task.

Around the line the riders began to gather around. He was already feeling nervous before he had to start off for the race. He kept on rolling and striving till he achieved what he desired. After a gruesome struggle he succeeded in establishing his position in the race. He outnumbered the rest with his single leg and arm. There were points and junctures in the race when he felt that he would not be able to cover the extra miles but he proved his mettle after an arduous journey.
