Mick Extance January 2018
In 2017 I was diagnosed with a brain tumour and subsequently underwent 16 hours of surgery. The drive to recover from this comes from my love of riding bikes and so began the journey to Dakar 2020.
You never know what life is going to throw at you, but I feel as though I have been given a second chance and I intend to do something positive with it.
By competing in the world’s toughest endurance race I am hoping that I can motivate other brain tumour sufferers to keep on fighting and also raise lots of money for the neurosurgical ward at Royal Stoke University Hospital. I could not be more grateful to all the staff there and would like to give something back.
If you would like to get involved in the project, why not buy a share.
£100 will get you a certificate to prove that you are part of the team and I will carry your name on my bike along the trails and through the sand dunes of South America as I compete in the rally. You will be sharing a very important cause with me and hopefully helping inspire others to never give up.
Follow my progress towards the rally and help me to support a cause that is very close to my heart.
