Master cyclist Sandy Scott was racing toward his goal of winning the Florida Senior Games time trials when he was involved in a horrible accident.
To avoid a person who stepped in front of his bike during the 10K time trial, he swerved suddenly, sending him flying over the handlebars and landing headfirst on the pavement.
He temporarily lost his memory and broke his C1 vertebrae.
Now, 18 months later, the 66-year-old has made a tremendous comeback.
He talked to Growing Bolder about his long road to recovery, including his controversial decision to forgo surgery.
