Five years after a spinal cord injury put an abrupt end to freeride mountain bike star Paul Basagoitia’s career, he has learned to walk again—and learned to ride a bike again. Thanks to e-bike technology, Paul is now riding bicycles further, higher, faster and beyond expected.

“The e-bike has literally given me a second chance in life,” says Paul B.

Recently relocated to Scottsdale, Arizona, Paul also found himself learning the trail networks of his new hometown, so we gave him a challenge…

The Challenge: “Explore”—How many trails can you explore in one day?

The Result: 24 trails, 30 miles, 42 jumps—in one day using an e-bike
