Description (Brief)
Jersey worn by Mike Schultz in the MotoCross event at the Adaptive X-Games. Mike Schultz is an extreme sports athlete who in 2008, was involved in a snowmobiling accident which fractured his knee and ultimately led to the amputation of his leg above the knee. Schultz soon developed a special prosthetic that allowed him to continue to participate in extreme sports. The Moto Knee was designed and developed by Schultz in 2009 and a year later he had founded the company BioDapt, Inc. which specializes in producing high impact adaptive sports prosthetics. In 2013 the Versa foot was developed and named one of the ten best inventions of that year. Schultz continues to compete as a three-sport X Games athlete with the most adaptive gold medals in XG history; he has 6 between Moto X Racing Adaptive and SnoCross Adaptive. Schultz competed in his first Paralympic Games in 2018 earning a gold medal in snowboard cross and a silver in banked slalom. He also won the ESPY award for best male athlete with a disability.
