Hardore Sitting Is RAD!

Aaron Fotheringham is an 18 year old wheelchair athlete from Las Vegas,Nevada. He was born with spina bifida, a birth defect of the spinal cord. This however hasn't stopped his pursuit for adrenalin and getting RAD. Hardcore sitting is what he does, and it consists of BMX/Skate-park inspired tricks and stunts in a wheelchair. He is accredited with being the first person to preform a wheelchair backflip, and has been featured on Nitro Circus. Currently he's working on testing a prototype wheelchair designed by Joven De La Vega inspired by todays BMX bikes and Skateboards. Its being dubbed the HXC wheelchair and it incorporates some well thought out design ideas.Pictures after the jump. These guys deserves some mad props, so check out these sites.
