From Paralysis to Podium – Inspirational rider achieves lifelong dream – 3FM

A biker who was told he would never walk again and had just a 30 per cent chance of survival has completed a lifelong dream.

48 year old Talan Skeels-Piggins was left paralysed from the chest down following a motorbike accident in 2003.

Now, 16 years on, he has travelled to the Island for the first time and completed the parade lap at the Classic TT.

Talan said ‘The Isle of Man is a fabulous place and to meet so many other like-minded bike fans and racers and actually go around the famous TT course was a dream come true.
