Blind Biker

I was going to submit this as a reply to the Team CF thread but I think it deserves its own thread.  If you think that film will motivate you how about this guy also I think I found my new favorite cyclist.

Bobby McMullen

Also after reading about him he makes Lance look like a total wuss. 
Hes had/got
loss of his vision
kidney failure
years of dialysis
two kidney/pancreas transplants
open-heart surgery

He competes nationally in skiing and DH mountain biking.

There's too many videos to really post just one.

This is a video of him describing how it is like for him on the bike

This is also a great representation of how I see as well and has given me some ideas as I never have thought guiding while mtbing to be possible.  It seems to be alot better than trying to memorize every little detail in a trail or having to stop continously to try and scout the route ahead.  Im shocked that I hadn't heard about this guy sooner as Ive looked into DH/XC racing myself. I didnt know about this guy till I read the American printing house for the blind post about him.
