I rode thumpers at Barrabool about 12/13 years ago, there was a guy on a berg (I think?) with one arm.
Lucky it was the throttle side he still had.
Was reasonably competitive too, dont recall him finishing last in any race.

People with handicaps usually have three options.

1. You let it beat you (most of the gravity challenged whiners).
2. Those that adapt (Steven Hawkins comes to mine)
3. Those that overcome (my mate, Bud McCray in Hawaii, one armed, 1.5 in the leg department, one eye and ear and surfs some of the biggest waves going).

Then there is guy, he just could not make up his mind and thought fukit, I’ll take 2 AND 3.

What a hero.
