Brad's Story: Back on the Bike


Brad “The Bullet” Baker is a leading flat track racer. On July 22, he sustained a spinal cord injury at the Minneapolis X Games. He received intensive rehabilitation at Shirley Ryan AbilityLab, and even got back on a bike for the first time with the support of the hospital’s Therapeutic Recreation team.


Several months after the accident, Brad continues to make progress.
