Amputee Sam Townsend Gets Back in the Saddle

“I remember the feeling when I did do it before. It’s so much of a floating feeling…”

Awesome!

That is incredible! It’s amazing how good prosthetics are now, he ran out of a couple of those UPD’s like it was a normal leg.

Thanks for posting this Lloyd :slight_smile:

Hope you don’t mind…saw it tweeted and thought people here would enjoy it as much as I did.

Is Sam still unicycling or was that a one-time thing?

Good for Sam. Thanks for sharing.

I don’t mind at all.
I know he hasn’t ridden since we filmed that, almost a year ago now. He said it really hurt and running out of UPD’s put a lot of strain on his knee. It’s easy for the prosthetic leg to come off and if that happened he’d go flying.
I think he was more curious if he could still do it rather than interested in taking it up again.

Cool video. Thanks

Cool video! Awesome is just a word to describe it. :slight_smile:
