"Wheelz" Takes Wheelchairs To New Heights

Aaron “Wheelz” Fotheringham is a 24 year-old wheelchair motocross athlete from Las Vegas, Nevada. Aaron was born with Spina Bifida, a birth defect of the spinal cord, which resulted in him having no usage of his legs…but that’s never stopped him.

Aaron started riding at skate parks at the age of 8 when his older brother Brian said he should drop in a quarter pipe. The first time was scary, and he he slammed hard. But he got up, tried it again, stomped it, and the rest is history as he built an entire life and career around his passion as the world’s top wheelchair freestyler.
