'I have a responsibility to lay down the hardest run I can'

The Stacy Kohut Story

Kohut has no fear taking on the 2016 Crankworx Air Downhill race.

Meet a rare breed of devoted racer: Stacy Kohut, the world’s fastest mountain biker on four wheels. Brought up in a drag racing family, as a youngster Kohut rode full throttle into everything — BMX, skateboarding, motocross, ski racing. But an accident on a swingset in 1992 nearly ended all that.

Today, Kohut credits those experiences for the athletic prowess he needed to master the custom four-wheeled mountain bike of his own design. “I have a responsibility as a person in a wheelchair with a so-called disability to go out and lay down the hardest run I can,” he says.

And as unique as his machine, Kohut is one of the most devoted athletes to his sport. Check out this video that provides an inside look as he prepared to compete in the 2016 Crankworx Air Downhill race, which is held on the planet’s most-trafficked, expert-level jump trail, Whistler Bike Park‘s A-Line.
