After two major operations failed to overcome the paralysis Mark now experienced in his right arm, he was back on his bike within 4 months of the accident.

His cycling experience prior to the accident and his ongoing commitment to training paid dividends as Mark competed for Great Britain at the European Championships in 2005, the World Championships in 2007 and 2009 and the Paralympic Games in 2008 in Beijing, returning from China with two gold medals.

Mark was born in Essex but has been living in California, USA, with his wife since 1996.
