Double Amputee Scott Rigsby Visits Global Ride
Ironman and double leg amputee Scott Rigsby visits Global Ride for a virtual cycling event.
The Global Ride Spin studio boasted a full house for Rigsby’s visit. The group participated in two of the three DVDs from Global Ride’s Hawaii Series of virtual cycling videos, Oceanside Ride and StrenDurance. Rigsby told a few stories and let the group see how he handled the stationary bike using prosthetic legs.
“It was very inspiring to see,” said Global Ride spokesperson Jeff Saporito. “At one point, [Rigsby] said that if he could accomplish an Ironman with no legs, then anyone can.” The Hawaii Ironman competition is said to be one of the most physically demanding competitions in the world.
