Motocross Star to Ride Across America for Spinal Cord Research.

Tweet

Jimmy Button, a former Factory Yamaha motocross racer, hopes to raise a million dollars for spinal cord research by riding his bicycle across America this coming February.

During a practice run for an AMA Supercross event on January 22, 2000, Button had a crash that left him paralyzed from the neck down for several months. Since then, Button has regained most of the use in his arms and legs. This injury has categorized him as an incomplete quadriplegic.

Button’s trans-continental ride will start at San Diego’s Qualcomm Stadium on February 20, 2011 and will finish 2428 miles later in Daytona Beach, Florida. Button and his foundation—The Road 2 Recovery’s Miles for Miracles—has signed on with Sette Bicycles to be the official bike supplier for the riders.

“I am so excited to be with Sette Bikes and their entire team. They are providing bikes for my whole crew to do the ride”, said Button. “The support they have given me for this cause has been unwavering. Hands down the Forza bikes that they are supplying us with are the best I have ever ridden”

Sette’s Marketing Manager, Erick ‘Big E’ Bartoldus said, “Jimmy’s resolve to give back to an athlete community that has been struck by spinal cord injuries is unparalleled. We at Sette want to help Jimmy and his quest to get riders out of the chair and back on a bike someday.”
